My Crafty Heart GDT Card - Honeybee With Love

Good afternoon.

I'm mega thrilled and just a touch nervous to be sharing my first ever GDT card for 
I still can't believe how lucky I was to have been picked - thank you so much Teresa :o)

After a little worry that my GDT parcel had gone astray - it was such a relief and uber excitement when it arrived today and I saw all the gorgeous goodies the very lovely Teresa picked for me to play ahem I mean work with.
So what else was a girl to do than head straight for my little crafty haven and get cracking.

Here's what I came up with:
