Robin Lee posted a card similar to this one on Splitcoast Stampers recently. Thanks, Robin, for the inspiration!
The background is embossed using a Cuttlebug folder, the flowers, bee and sentiment are from SU stamps and punches. The flower centers are Black Diamond Stickles.
The page from the book came from one that I found at the library in a stack of free books. The name of the book is "The Dancing Bees An Account of the Life and Senses of the Honey Bee" ---how appropriate! So I made sure part of the title appears at the top of the cut off portion I used.
