Double D Challenge - "Bee" Inspired

Diane has inspired us with this board of fun images.  She just said BEEs or just be inspired by the board.
Ok, I was stumped by this challenge as I could not find a bee stamp in my collection.  Has that ever happened to you?  So here I am looking and did not find anything to create a nice card. So I did one and I really didn't like it, but it was a Bee card. Then, like magic, I found one that I loved and have never used.  I scrapped the first card and did this one for you. 
                                            Here is the inspiration board for you. 

My card for inspiration

For this card, I went into the depths of my craft room stamps and found this one from Stampin Up. A never before used stamp, imagine that! It is called Just Buzzin By and I love it again. Along with that, I  stamped a Penny Black Stamp called Refined.  Then I die cut and colored a few flowers and leaves with a Sizzix framelits.  I think the yellow background paper is old , but goes with this theme. 

Just check out this prize, you could make a card very much like this one and you will have a chance to win if you enter. 

This is the prize for a random winner. 

Remember to take a look at the blog.  You can find it HERE. 

Thanks for stopping by and I always appreciate your comments!
