Bug A Boo Stamps Spring Stuff Collection

Happy Saturday!
We have a new challenge starting today at Bug A Boo Stamps Catch The Bug, the theme is "layers".  The challenge is to use 4 or more layers on your card or project.

For my card I colored the cute bee and flower from Jodie's Spring Stuff collection with Copic markers Y18, Y15, Y13, T5, T3, BV0000, BV000, BV01, BV02, G20, G24, E44, E43, BG10, BG0000.  My layout is Splitcoast Stampers SC#327 flipped.

The reason I flipped it was to add the tag in the bare spot by the stem of the flower.  I could have added three black half pearls to the bottom like the sketch but chose not to.

I used my Stampin' Up! color wheel again for my color choices, after I'd colored the image I realized the Basic Grey Kioshi paper pad has those tones and I found an old (really old) Stampin' Up! 6X6 sampler DP pad to help pull everything together.  I don't think I've ever used two different manufacturers designer paper pads together before.  The sentiment I picked up as a freebie the other day at the Scap-a-licious Times blog by linking off of the Free Digi Stamps blog.  A little Stickles Ice on the bee wings covered with crystal lacquer and a button for my tag to finish my card.

I hope you'll join in for our challenge at Bug A Boo Stamps Catch The Bug this week!
