Just Buzzin' by

Hi Everyone and thanks for stopping by today.
Time for a new challenge over at Crafty Creations Challenges. The theme is Stitch - Real or Fake.

Also, the sponsor for this challenge is Lacy Sunshine:

Let me share a bit of info about Lacy Sunshine

Heather Valentin is a lady who has breathed art her entire life. She was drawing as soon as she could hold crayon. Guided by her father, she found her truest joy in drawing and painting, culminating in a BA in Arts. Heather made her way in the world by creating original drawings and installations for Nabisco, Coco Cola, and sundry other corporations for advertisement and display. But Heather's true love has always been creating her own characters and sharing them with an appreciative public. She takes special joy in helping others create, whether its by showing them how to color, or by teaching which elements of mixed media can enhance a crafter's design. Art is life for Heather, and it gives her joy to share that joy with others.

I chose Buzzy's Flower and it's the cutest image.Hope you like it. 

I added hex shaped pieces to the edge of the oval, using an alcohol inked panel that I had saved for just the right project. 
I had a scrap of DP that had a honeycomb background that just works great with the cute buzzy image.

I added those faux stitches to the edge of the front oval.It ties in with the stitches on the bee image.
