Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today for our hop we have a color challenge using the colors, Black, Gold and Whisper White.  The Honey Bee stamp set and coordinating paper, Golden Honey from the Sale-A- Bration Catalog were the perfect pair for my share today.
