The BuzzProverbs 16:24 Plain Jane
The Buzz Die Set

I made this card for a special student that I'm tutoring in preparation for a national board exam.  The new set, The Buzz, reminds me of the symbolic meaning of a bee.  You know a bee is scientifically too heavy to fly with its small wings...but somehow, it flies anyway because of the tenacity of it's beating wings.

After stamping The Buzz bee over a piece of yellow paper, I die cut it and the honeycomb shape from The Buzz Die Set.  The bee, the honeycomb and a Simple Stories I Am ephemera flower were nestled together and embellished with some Gold Glam Shaker Mix confetti.  A sentiment from The Buzz was stamped over a light blue piece of Simple Stories I Am patterned paper, cut as a flag and clustered with an arrow on the bottom corner of the card front. 


You arrived here from Julee's amazing blog...now it's time to hop on over to Teresa's beautiful blog!  Enjoy the rest of today's hop!  See you tomorrow for our final peek into the new release!
