Fruitcake Bees

The beautiful thing about these Stampendous Bees is that I can use up a few of the MILLION prima flowers that I have in my stamp room.
Still playing Christmas in August; this paper is from Basic Grey's "Fruitcake" Collection, called "Sleigh Bells, Pine.
I decided that when I go to purchase Christmas patterned paper this year, I'm going to choose patterns that can be dual purpose, used for both Christmas cards and all-occasion! Listen to me. I can't use up the patterned paper I have, yet I'm planning ahead for another purchase! DOH!



I thought that this paper looked honey-combish, and gives a different twist to the bees. I'm amazed that it doesn't look Christmassy at all! :)
