As soon as I saw the image, I found so many beautiful photos of foxglove and was truly surprised at the variety of colors. And so many of the photos showed the little "bee bottoms" too (they sure love the nectar)! This image was my inspiration - her name is "Digitalis Polkadot Polly Hybrida" (how cute, eh?).

So say hello to my "Polly." I used the entire digital image and colored her a sort of peachy/apricot color with touches of yellow inside her cup. A touch of Wink of Stella is on the bee wings. I wanted this image to take "front stage" on my card and used an oval die with a mat and (of course) paper-pierced just inside the matted oval. For some texture, I used a large embossing folder and matted it as well, adhered my oval, and then added a sheer ribbon that I dyed with two Copic markers to match (adding a little "for you" sentiment from Good Thinking: Renewal...along with a dyed pearl). I adhered that to the card base with red tape, and it was done!
