Strawberry Bee

This is for a cardswap amongst CraftyNZCardmakers and had to use a paper napkin fusing technique.
I got this circular paper napkin with a scalloped edge at Villandry in France last year and thought it too beautiful to be used and tossed.  Such delicious looking strawberries you can almost taste them!  And the bee is about life sized and so real.

Paper Napkin
Hex punch: Fiskars
Sentiment Stamp: magazine freebie
Inked and misted with Shimmer spray
Also: ribbons, bee charm, Wink of Stella on wings

Your upcycling of that gorgeous napkin is fabulous, Carol ... it's perfectly complemented by the red border (and that tiny bee charm)! What a lovely reminder of your time at the Chateau! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Anita :)
