Just a jar of bees

.... well. where else would you keep bees? Or flowers for that matter?


The jar of bees and flowers and the separate bees are pre-printed die cuts that were part of a lovely bundle of craft goodies I won in a magazine challenge earlier this year. They are a bit big for using with anything else - that's an A5 sized card and the jar fills most of the front - and I wasn't really sure whether I would ever use them, until this week's challenge at Just Us Girls appeared and the theme is JARS!

 
Well, it's the only jar-themed stash in my extensive arsenal so I had to grab the chance to use it! Because the die cuts are so big, there's not much you can really do with them, but I was delighted to find that the honeycomb print paper in my beloved DCWV Stack9 includes a shade of green that exactly matches the centre of the flower. And honeycomb is the natural accompaniment to bees, isn't it? I've added a teeny-tiny stamped sentiment to counterbalance the bigness of everything else.
