What a gorgeous bee Kathy and love the fuzzy look to the honeycomb background, and a great mix of stamps and stencils on the ATC, and love the addition of the orange and red which together with the darker tones gives great contrast. x

Your LIM set looks beautiful; love that subtile background that you made for the beautiful bee!
And layering stamps is a technique I like to do too! (most of the time with some masking); it gives a different look every time... And this one looks beautiful to! Hope your weel will be a sunny one! Hugs, Gerrina
