Isn’t this a wonderful set? I love the clover and little bees and the quotes are beautiful! For my card, I stamped and water colored two of the clover images and used the fabulous matching die to cut them out.  I love fussy cutting, but give me a die like this, and I’ll hang up my scissors in a heart beat! I also die cut piece of card board to attach under one of the clovers for a little lift. After stamping the quote on some gold parchment c/s, I attached a black frame with a Spellbinders label 17 cut out of the middle.

The beautiful honeycomb background image was stamped on top of a subtle dp pattern. the black/cream dot pattern is another dp pattern. I didn’t have the right size brads in black, so I used a black Permapaque marker to color some white brads and heat set to dry them. The finished ivory card is 5.5 x 4.25.
