Flourishes New Release Blog Hop - Day 2

Hello, my friends!

Welcome back to Day 2 of the Flourishes New Release Blog Hop!
One lucky winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to the Flourishes LC Store.
Keep reading to find out how! :o)
Today we're featuring the new release stamp set called "Clover & Bees"
...which you will find in the Flourishes Shop.

I stamped out the focal image, along with three of the sentiments. 

After colouring the image, I layered it on some pretty matching papers.
Then I added a shimmery bow and some sparkly sequins!

One layer was punched with a decorative punch.

These sentiments are all separate, and I just stamped them one above the other. 

Here you can see where I added some Stickles to the bees wings:

Materials Used:
Papers: K & Company - Watercolor Bouquet;
Image: Flourishes LC - Cover & Bees,
Spectrum Noir Markers;
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black, 
Martha Stewart - Stem Green, Lilac;
Punches: Martha Stewart-Punch-Around-the-Page - Swirling Lace;
WRMK Corner Chomper - 1/4"
Ribbon: Celebrate It;
Stickles: Star Dust;
Sequins: Unknown.

Such a beautiful card! I have tried (several times) to punch all around the page and never seem to be able to get the hang of it. I also have some of those Martha Stewart punches that punch anywhere and I've never even tried them. Your card is urging me to try punch around the page again.
