Loves Rubberstamps Challenge-Photo Inspiration

It is Tuesday so that means it is time for another challenge over at Loves Rubberstamps.  This week it is a Photo Inspiration.  Laura picked this lovely photo for us to work with. 

I did my card based on the color scheme and the plaid on the shirt. I used the stamp, Honeybee, by Whimsy Stamps via Elizabeth Bell.  I used a great gatefold card tutorial I found via Some Odd Girl Blog. 

Colored the image with my Copics and Spectrum Noirs.

Hair: E31,33,51,21
