I got to play with the CUTEST bumble bee die cut and his little hive, one of the latest new die cuts from Rubbernecker. I just love the size and scale of these little fellows and just had to add a little bed of tiny paper flowers for him to collect all that yummy pollen! For this sweet scene I used the Inside Scallop, Bee With Hive, Stitched Hills, Leaves and Greenery, Spring Leaves, Small Flowers #1, Small Flowers #3 and Tiny Flower Buds.
