I absolutely love this stamp set.  I have made lots of different cards with it already using the latest Blossom and Jackson Paper packets so, I decided to use use up some scraps for this card.  The little arrows and the colours from the Chalk it Up Paper Packet were made for this stamp set.  I stamped a set of balloons in black ink on Daisy White card stock, the stamped the balloon tops with coordinating inks on Lagoon, Honey and Sorbet card stock, cut each one out and inked the edges. They were paper pieced on top of each balloon, trimming off the over hanging pieces.  How cool is the arrow stamp? (used Lagoon ink) of course....and to think I nearly forgot about it whilst I pondered over my last embellishment. The sentiment was stamped on Sorbet card stock, mounted on White Daisy and adhered with 3D Foam Tape

The moment I saw the sweet little bee, I immediately thought of  the  Paper Fundamentals - Adventure Collection - Honeycomb paper.  Predictable I know, but I could not resist and it is a really quick CAS - (Clean and Simple Card) if one is in a rush. Added three Bling Gems Gold (same size)
