Just Go For It

Over at Creatalicious they are looking for design team members so I have decided to "throw my hat in the ring". After all, I've got nothing to lose by trying, have I? Bec created a sketch for everyone to use for an "audition" card and I had a LOT of fun working with the design and decided to go for something a little different!

Here' s the sketch:

My card incorporates some of my favourite techniques; brayering, watercolouring and paper piecing, and I've also thrown in some of my new favourite SU papers, Parisian Breeze. Just Buzzin' By is the stamp set, which that hasn't made it to our shores yet but I love it, it's so cute! I wonder how many of you can guess what I used for the paper behind the beehive? You'll laugh when you realise/find out!!! LOL!
Here's my card:
Some bling on the wings is obligatory of course!

And a simple message on the inside:
