Post 227: CAS Birthday Card

Hi friends :)

I'd like to share a Clean and Simple Birthday Card today. This is a standard A2 sized top folding card. I seem to need tons of birthday cards so it is always a good idea to make a few extras :) 
Essentially, the background is done by sponging inks through a hexagon stencil. The flower was die cut twice in black and white and adhered slightly off set for a shadowy effect. The smaller negative pieces from the die cut were also lightly colored with distress oxide inks and adhered back into the design. The bee and sentiment were stamped and in the end a few clear drops were added.

List of Supplies:

Lawn Fawn Small Dotted Rectangle Die
Ranger's Distress Oxide Inkpads- Cracked Pistachio and Worn Lipstick
Memento Dye Inkpad- Angel Pink
White Cardstock 250 gsm
Ranger's round blending tool and foams
Hexagon Stencil 
Versafine Onyx Black Mini Inkpad 
DCAM clear drops 
Glossy Accents 
Tombow Mono Multi Glue 

Here are a couple of photographs of the card:
