Heartfelt Creations Inspiration Wednesday

Hello friends. Today I have another card made with the Sweet as Honey collection from Heartfelt Creations.
It's very seldom that I use black in such a prominent way but it really makes this card pop! There is a wonderful honeycomb die included with this collection which I used to make a see through card front. 
Tip: remember to color the back of the flowers with a black marker or ink since it shows on the inside. For the inside I used one of the cut aparts as the background for this adorable bee bungalow. There is also a hexagon die with a variety of sizes which I used to cut out the design paper.
