Wild Honey

It's Release week at Flourishes and during the week they offer up challenges at noon, that you can enter to try to win their newest releases!! Today's noon challenge is: Name Game! 
The idea is that you take your First, Middle and Last initials to come up with creations that has things that start with your initials :)
Mine are:

A ~ Adhesive (Couldn't think of anything that started with "A")
N ~ Neutrals
H ~ Honey (a bit of a stretch so I used a stamp set with "honey" in it)

I used Flourishes "Bee My Honey" stamp set, colored in with Copics. I used a Spellbinders Butterflies diecut, cut from an old Hambly paper & a My Mind's Eye Lost & Found paper under that. I used the Spellbinders Classic Lace die to make my lacy border, to which I added pearls. I embossed a single frame around my card matting, at the end.

I apologize for the color and clarity of my picture. I had to keep the lighting low so you could see the embossed frame around my card.

I kept everything, including the coloring of my picture, very light. To keep with the neutral "rule" and I love it. I really hemmed and hawed about adding the pearls, since I seem to add pearls to everything I do. But I think I will keep adding them to my cards, and not worry about them being over used. Besides, I love them too much to give them up, it's what makes me happy - LOL  ;)


  1. Beautiful! Lovely frame to your sweet as honey image! Love how you incorporated your initials! Thanks for playing along at Flourishes!

  2. Absolutely lovely card! And don't worry about adding pearls -- they are a classic!

  3. Wow... this is so soft and pretty Amanda! You have such a way with color and layout -- this is divine!

  4. So beautiful Amanda! Love everything about this! The image, the diecut, the colors, the border! I am with you, I use way too many pearls, but I LOVE them! They add so much to a card!

  5. So soft and pretty Amanda. I love the SB dies you used. :)

  6. I love how softly colored and feminine this is. So beautiful! As for the pearls, if you've got 'em, use 'em! When I first discovered Kaiser self-adhesive flat-backed pearls I thought I'd gone to Heaven. By the way, you're doing a wonderful job with your Limelight posts. I think I mentioned the Flourishes blog won't take my comments, but I wanted to let you know I've been looking and learning. Thank you!

  7. So beautiful Amanda! Love the overall softness of your card!

  8. Amanda, that is so pretty! I love the soft colors you chose. Gorgeous card.
    Hugs and smiles
