A few months back I found this honeycomb paper on sale at my LSS and picked it up for no other reason than it was on sale and I figures somewhere along the line I could use it.  Fast forward to The Buzz entering my life and a match in heaven was made - too bad I only got one sheet LOL!   Added the honeycomb die under the bee as well as some Stickles to its wings and I am indeed being joyful :)

VR June 2015 Ps 19:14 photo VRJun2015Ps19PJ.jpg

For my second card today, I used this fabulous Psalm 19:14 Plain Jane.  Going to be humming the song all day now :)   Adore the new Butterfly Dreams die as there are two butterfly dies in it which allows you to use the butterfly with the antennae, one without or to layer them as I did with mine.  Added a few half pearls to the wings for some detailing and focus as they needed to stand out a bit more.
