DRS Designs Challenge #174-Birds and Bees

Good morning!
The new challenge this week is anything bird and/or bees!
DRS Design stamps used: 1020A Bitsy Bumble Bee, 1143L Beehive, 1147B Bee Trail, 544F Bee Cause You're Special, 561C Happy Bee, 019C Honeycomb Design.
The top panel is stamped with VersaMark on white and embossed with white then sponged with Distress inks.  The bottom panel was embossed with an embossing folder in a honeycomb design. I then mounted the two panels on a dark honey color and stitched around the outside with a zig zag stitch.  The beehive and Bitsy bee (plus a reverse image of Bitsy Bee.  I stamped the Bitsy bee on the back of a clear stamp then stamped it onto the stock.  Easy!) I then die cut with a DiNamic nesting die leaving the branch out of course, "Out of the box" style. I die cut a dark honey square to mat. I stamped and cut out the Happy Bee and the sentiment (as if it is a bee trail). The wings are glittered, of course, all bug wings are glittered...right?
