Since I don't own a hexagon embossing folder (need to do something about that soon!) I opted for my trusty chicken wire folder instead.  Paired it with some dots and this darling beehive and bees from The Buzz set.   Used the co-ordinating dies from the The Buzz die set and opted for this adorable sentiment as it always makes me smile.  Added some Stickles to the bee wings for a bit of sparkle.

My second card showcases the Proverbs 16:24 Plain Jane.  In keeping with the honeybee theme, I used the chicken wire embossing folder again and layered up the sentiment panel.   The Scalloped Trim Trio circle die framed in the sentiment, I fussy cut the small bees and added Stickles to the wings to add a bit of zip to the sentiment tag.
