Pop into the Crafters Cafe for a crafty challenge with choices.  This time it's USE STENCILS or USE PUPRLE-ORANGE-BLACK or BOTH!
I have used STENCILS for this one, and the team have poured some more inspiration for you, here:

Thanks to Lisa at Decosse Dynamite Doodles
for the super papers, get them here:  decossesdynamitedoodles  : Plaid: pink & grey paper; Buzzing by: Bee paper

The bee paper was my inspiration for the card theme and the plaid for the colour.
I distressed the edges of the grey paper and stencilled bees in black.  The papers are layered with a little strip of diecut lace to highlight the colour, then a diecut honeycomb placed before adhering the bee strip.  While I was working on it, some of the fall-out bits from the die fell on the card - which I liked - so I decided to keep them as embellishment; they are popped up on foam.

What great use of the colours in the paper to make this fabulous card Carol - love the stencilled bees, and how you have used the cut outs from the die cut as accents.
