Little Paper Shop is a Buzzin'

It's May release time and there is a new Little Cutie debuting today, Jena Bee.  She is definitely a sweetie!   She will be available for purchase in the Little Paper Shop store on Tuesday, May 4th.
I went with non-traditional colors because I found this great bee paper from Gooseberry Patch, add in some BoBunny dot paper and it was all good.

Her wings are made from acetate.  I first sanded the acetate to give it texture, then stamped and embossed.  This was the perfect technique for bee wings because you can still see thru the wings, almost like the real ones.
The layout is based on sketch #165 from CPS:

The rest of the design team has some wonderful creations to share as well.  Be sure to buzz on by and check out the Little Paper Shop Blog, then visit all the DT and leave 'em some lovin'.  One commenter will win a $10 gift certificate to the LPS Store!!!  That is enough moola to pick up a fun set and still cover shipping!

 Have a great weekend!
Smiles, Julie
