Bee Mine!

Carrying on with the love theme, today I have a card to show you using another image from Drawn With Character which is called Bee Mine.
I decided that as the image was of bees I would use my Spellbinders nesting Hexagon dies to make a honeycomb effect with patterned papers on a honeycomb shaped card base. I went into my craft room to look for the dies, brought them downstairs so that I could scan them into Photoshop (I like to lay my card out in Photoshop and re-size papers etc., so that the patterns aren't too big for the shapes), I opened the packet grabbed the first die and then realised that I was a total idiot! they weren't hexagons at all, they were octagons LOL! and totally unsuitable for a honeycomb.

I still wanted to use the honeycomb layout so ended up cutting the shapes out by hand.
I also liked the idea of adding a love themed charm to the card but somehow or other ended up with 5 of them, dangling across the card like bunting, (I couldn't decide which one looked best, so decided to use them all, well you know what they say - less is more, but even more is even better hehe!). I also added a small piece of feather to the end of the arrow that is piercing the heart.
