Have a Bee-utiful day

It is Challenge time with the team from Crazy 4 Challenges and Raquel has this weeks challenge.

Let's make this really easy or it could be hard.  Put ANY 10 things on your card, it can be buttons, brads, die cuts, layers of card stock, flowers, rhinestones, etc.  The items could also be a stamped image that has 10 things on it.

The front of my card is just a normal card front but it hides a surprise inside, a busy bee hive with 10 bees buzzing around.
I started by creating a stencil in acetate with the honeycomb die  and used wild honey distress ink, just moving the stencil to complete the background.
I used the pop stand from the Eiffel Tower pop stand and attached the beehive. I added a black piece of honeycomb and my bees were made with the Bee dies and the small bees are peel off stickers with warm diamond micro fine glitter. The small bee flying out of the beehive was attached with acetate before attaching the hives together.
The sentiments were stamped on pieces cut with the Anita Frames and Labels.

Here is the front and the back photos as some of the bees are hidden when you look from the one angle. Just follow the link here for Karen Burniston's tutorial on how to use the Eiffel tower pop stand.
