Hi everyone, this card I made with the lovely stamp set Circle Friends by Simon Says Stamp.

They’re having celebrating the  STAMPtember® event and the theme of this week challenge is to use any product that is available in the Simon Says Stamp store.

To made this card first I cut a piece from this woodgrain patterned paper from the Soho Garden Collection, the idea is that it’s a tree and through the holes you can see the honeycombed, for that reason I punched 4 holes and stamped behind 3 of them the circle with hexagons in a yellow ink.

Then I stamped 2 bees one in the 4th circle and the other on patterned paper the same patterned paper that is behind the bigger circle where I embossed the sentiment. For the one bee I used watercolor pencils and for the other bee I used the patterned paper, a black marker, vellum for their wings and black thread for the antennas.

So if you want to play and make a card and have the chance to win a $50 gift card, go here.
