Bumblefly

When I bought this stamp set last week (10% off this month only, from a•muse studio), I remembered that I had some cute bumblebee brads that would be adorable with the hive image.  Unfortuantely, I didn't dig them out until I had already placed everything; that's when I discovered that they were actually butterflies, not bees.  This is not the first time I've made that mistake with these brads - I remember that they are black and gold, and not so much what insect they are.
I also pulled out my chalks, which rarely see the light of day.  It's an extra step to spray them with fixative, but I do love the soft haze of color that you get with chalks.  I used the Pastel Detailing technique from the Technique Junkies newsletter.
