Simply B Stamps March Progressive Challenge - Beehive Queen

Good evening! I finally found time today after a busy weekend to write up my blogpost for this month's progressive challenge from Simply B Stamps. I loved this image and had the perfect patterned papers and dies to go with her! The recipe we were given for this challenge was to use black, white and yellow as the main colours, patterned papers, ribbon and embossing. I did forget the embossing initially so went back and added some shabby blue frantage embossing powder around the image! It is a larger card at 7.75 inches square, but it needed to be big to get all the layers and die cuts on!
