A Card for Two Challenges

I made this one for the Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge151 here, and the Splitcoast Color Combination#324 here. The colors to use are Baha Breeze, Perfect Plum and Soft Suede.
My base is Soft Suede card stock then I added some Baha Breeze and DSP from Elegant Soiree. I stamped the sentiment from Occasional Quotes in Soft Suede on Very Vanilla and matted it with some Soft Suede. I stamped the "bee hive" image from Circle Circus in Perfect Plum and trimmed it down, adding a Perfect Plum piece punched with the 1 inch Circle punch. I ran some Baha Breeze thru the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and punched out two circles with the 1 1/4 inch Circle punch. I stamped friend to friend from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Perfect Plum and punched it out with the Word Window punch. I added a Perfect Plum piece punched with the Modern Label punch and popped it up with Stampin' dimensionals. Finally, some Baha Breeze 1/2 inch seam binding finishes it off.
Stamps: Occasional Quotes and Teeny Tiny Wishes
Papers: Very Vanilla, Baha Breeze, Soft Suede, Perfect Plum, Elegant Soiree DSP
Inks: Perfect Plum and Soft Suede
Accessories: 1 inch and 1 1/4 inch Circle punches, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Square Lattice embossing folder, 1/2 inch Baha Breeze seam binding, Stampin' dimensionals
