Be happy

   I love the colour combination of yellow and black so I just had to use those colours with this digi called 'bee digi 7' from Scrapper's delight. I immediately thought of honeycomb so decided to make a hexagonal card.
   Using  a tattered Lace hexagonal die I cut a piece of yellow core'dinations cardstock. I cut an aperture using a smaller die and then embossed the card using the Tattered Lace hexagonal lattice die. I then dusted it with distress ink. I coloured the digi image using Promarkers and inserted it in the aperture before matting and layering onto black and then white card.
   The sentiment was cut from black card using the elegant alphabet and all occasion Tattered Lace dies. Finally I added the bumble bee cut again from black card using the Tattered Lace beautiful bee die.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
