MMSC Kickoff - Hey Honey!

Welcome to the first day of Midnight Madness!!! Here is the very first sketch that Priscilla has challenged us with:

I didn't really have a finished card envisioned as I sometimes do . . . I actually started this one with my paper selection, and it evolved from there, I just love the Urban Prairie collection by Basic Grey! I paired up this cute bumblebee paper with an appropriate stamp by The Cat's Pajamas, which didn't fit in my oval nestie so I improvised a little with a rectangle. Then the empty space around the stamp seemed like too much, so I tried something new and paper pieced some coordinating paper around the main image, but inside the nestie. Hmm, I really like the way it turned out :) and I think this qualifies as a window for the Cuttlebug Spot Challenge #30, too!

I watercolored my image and glossed it up with some dimensional glaze so it's super shiny! I mounted the patterned paper "window" frame on foam dots, then popped the image & sentiment up over the frame. All of my other little embellies just fell into place - I used Prima flowers, adhesive rhinestones, Making Memories Clears (black corners), Nestablities and my trusty sewing machine.
