Bee-uatiful Color Combo

Hi girls! Time for another Diedrich Dare on this Whimsical Wednesday! This week we have a color challenge. These always stretch me outside of my comfort zone. I really think this is a great combo and hope that you'll join in with us this week! Be sure to link up your card over at the Dare blog!
I used the Bee Tile from Sugar Creek Hollow that was the free image this past week. This is one of my favorite images from SCH. I love the collage look and this is already done for me! Got to love that! I used this week's sketch from SCS for the layout.
I added a little color to the flowers and vine with some colored pencils. The bumblebee body was colored with a Dove blender and Pearl Ex and the wings were painted with Radiant Pearls. It's very sparkly in real life - perhaps you can get an idea from this next photo:


Take a spin over to the Diedrich Dare blog to see the featured team member this week. And check out the rest of the team members too!

Another beautiful card, that embossed background really adds to it, and i like the small touches like the rhinestone.
