Honey Bee Showcase- Old, New, Borrowed, Blue

This week at Betty Bee's Buzz Amy Sheffer is our guest designer! She made a GORGEOUS balloon card! She also got to pick the theme for this week and she chose... Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. 

Amy Sheffer is a good friend of my friend June (also a HoneyBee) and I am thrilled that June set this up because Amy's card is just gorgeous and her talent is fabulous. 

I have to admit I was STOKED about this challenge. I laid everything out that I wanted to use and realized... there was no blue. haha! So I started again and I'm very happy at where the card evolved to. 

 Old: old script writing
Borrowed: a sketch from Artful Delight AND the idea of having the flowers overlap like that from Melinda Spinks HERE
Blue: background paper

It is based on this sketch here:


Play along this week to win a prize! :) There are SO many takes on this challenge and it's a really fun one. So have a blast and join us! :)

This is breathtaking, Courtney! I love the flowers punched out of the script paper and the way they overlap. Gorgeous seam binding, too. Thanks to all of you for having me as a guest host!
