Bugs, Bees and Butterflies

It's November already! Where is this year disappearing to?! This month the theme at Country View Crafts Challenges is Bugs, Bees and Butterflies. This makes me think of summer days - a real change from the increasingly cold rainy weather outside my window! So for my first piece this month I chose to go back to my square journal and use the fabulous bee die from Mr Holtz. The wings have a thin layer of Glossy Accents on to give a subtle sheen. 
The paper behind the blue backing is a dictionary stamp by Wendy Vecchi stamped several times on tissue paper with Vintage Photo Distress Ink over the top. I enjoyed making my own backing paper... think this might be a new obsession! Hope you pop over and see what my talented team mates have made and that you feel inspired to join in with us this month!
