I'm Buzzing with excitement....

....for this month's Stamp of the Month from Cornish Heritage Farms.

This stamp is known as the "Bee List" and it's so fun! It has a vintage look, but you can easily pair it with some of the other bee stamps (stay tuned later this week for a card I did using Kim Hughes stamps with this stamp).

This card started off one way and ended up in a completely different direction. There's lots of distressing (with the Cuttlebug and sanding as well as using my Heidi Swapp edge distresser). I attached the stamped image with some staples and then added a layered flower as an accent. To finish off the card I used a white pen to accent the edges.

Bee sure to check out the other designer samples in the CHF gallery.
