Make My Monday: Things with Wings

Good morning.  Today's challenge at Make My Monday is Things with Wings.  I decided to make a set of two cards using this lovely bee die, which is an Intricuts die by Hobbycraft.  I love these dies.  The designs are beautiful and they're really good quality too.

For each card, I die cut the bee three times, from black card, yello w card and an irridescent white card.
Then I used both the positive and negative die cuts to piece together the bee.  I love how it's turned bout, but this really did take a very long time, particularly when I did the wings.  I wanted the bees to be the main focus of my cards, so I layered them onto card and patterned paper, just adding a few paper flowers at the corners.   The patterned papers I've used on these cards are some very old Papermania papers that I must have had in my stash from not long after I started card making.  I think I must have had them about 12 years!  (I still don't have enough papers though).  I hope you can join us this week at Make My Monday.

I would like to enter my cards in the following challenges:
