Just B-coz...

Hello, is it spring yet?
I felt like hibernating this morning when I awoke to a fresh coat of the white stuff. Enough already!
You might think thoughts of spring were the inspiration for this card, but it was actually a couple of challenges:
The Friday Mashup, which was to use triangles and/or hexagons  (I missed the deadline, BTW, so I'll have to try harder next week),  and
I don't have any hexagon stencils or embossing folders, so I created some using my scoring board:
flipped it over when finished and sanded to reveal the pattern.
The honeycomb hexies were made using a punch, some patterned paper and the CTMH stamp set Doodle Signs,  pictured above. Some were popped up for added dimension.
The sweet little bumble bee is from Paper Smooches' Green Thumb. I thought he looked good in orange! Keyboard alpha stamps also from CTMH.
Turns out its NOT too late for the Happy for Hexagons challenge over at Moxie Fab World. 
It runs through March 7th, so get cracking!
 Thanks for the head's up, Lyndal!
That's all for today,
Happy crafting,
