You're as Sweet as Honey

Today I'm sharing a Thank You card.
I used a stitched mat rectangle die from Lil' Inker Designs for the cream panel - and a Time Piece die from My Favorite Things that I cut from shiny gold card stock.  You would usually pop out the little squares on this die - but I wanted it solid behind my bee.
I stamped the large bee from the PTI set Honey Bees in black ink and colored in the body with a Gold Gel Stick pen from Uni ball.  The gold body is shimmery IRL!  The gold strip is a tape from the Market Kit Luxe Letterpress set from PTI
I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bees set in the corner on the front of the card - and stamped Thank You inside along with the crown from the same set.

My card design was inspired by this weeks Cas(e) this sketch
