The Flowers and the Bees

The song lyrics, "The birds and the bees, the flowers and the trees, the moon up above, and a thiing called love", have been running through my head since I saw this challenge at The Paper Players on Sunday. Leanne called the challenge to "Create a card or project using birds, bees, flowers and/or trees."

You may recognize these colors from the card I posted last night.  They are from the SCS Color Challenge321 to use Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler & Crumb Cake.  Dessert option was to add something shiny or glittery.  After stamping  the flower petals, I did some highlighting with my Cherry Cobbler marker, went over the petals with the VersaMark pen and clear embossed.  They look and feel silky. Maybe if you click on the picture, you can see more detail.

Absolutely gorgeous Bonnie! Those flowers make a stunning focal point and I can see you are loving the Square Lattice embossing folder as much as I am!

Bonnie, It's wonderful to see this set again. I love that you added the bee. The color combo is fabulous. Reminds me of an ice cream sundae! Fabulous job.
So glad you joined the Paper Players this week.

Your card is beautiful!!! I needed to make a card for a graduate that our church has been helping and for some reason, "Inspired by Nature" is the set I wanted to work with. I looked in the Splitcoaststampers gallery for ideas and your card "jumped out at me" : )
My card is quite different but you definitely gave me the inspiration.
I would love to send a picture to you via e-mail but I don't know how: }
