CC305 challenge and MFP blogspot challenge_embossing

This card uses the new set “Happy Pansies” from Mark’s Finest Papers.
The flower was stamped twice using Palette Noir and
coloring with Copic Markers, I then cut the flowers leaving
one whole and only keeping the 3 top petals of the second.
If you look closely you will see a tiny Ladybug on one of the leaves.
To try to make her pop a little I added some Krystal Effects, I think
that worked.
I popped the completed Pansy onto a white circle Nestie and a pink scalloped
Nestie that I added some white dots with a gel pen.
The main panel is pink and white. I used two embossing folders on this, one
is the Swiss Dots and the other a strip from Just My Type.
I then stamped the sentiment is the clear space. I stamped an extra bee “the larger one”
then colored them with a yellow Copic marker. To finish these adorable little bees I added
some Crystal Stickles. It looks terrific IRL, the bees look like the are really flying.
I think this card is so pretty to look at.
