Hello friends, and welcome back to my blog!  I'm back today to share my card for the current Stella Says Sketch challenge at the Catch the Bug blog.  Here's the sketch:

And here's my card:

I took a few liberties with the sketch...actually because I forgot I was to be using the sketch!  Luckily my card turned out pretty close to it anyway! 😉  I used a Bird's Cards free cut file for the honeycomb pattern, layered it onto a lighter yellow layer of cardstock, and jazzed it up a bit with some Brushed Corduroy oxide ink around the edges, and on some select cut out pieces.  I also mixed the ink with water and then splattered the pieces for more interest.  All the hexagon pieces are popped up on one layer of foam tape, while the image oval was given 2 layers of foam tape.  I decided not to add a sentiment just yet, although it will probably be something simple like "hi."  Oh yes, and the image is Bees - Small Flower, which was a recent freebie.
