This was one of the first cards I made with the adorable set, Spring Sampler. When I saw the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder in the Spring Catalog, I immediately thought of a beehive. I know I'm not the only one. It just seems to be a natural connection, though the folder is certainly not limited to that. A friend of mine used it as chicken wire. And, of course, it's great as a geometric background.
Once I saw the bee in Spring Sampler, I knew the card I wanted to make. The B is from the aptly named, Lovely Letters, and the Happy is from More Merry Messages (the stamp says, Happy Christmas - I just inked up the Happy with my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker).
