 Hey there friends!  It's time for me to share my card for the LAST New Release from Digi Doodle Studios. That's right, this is the final new release from Digi Doodle Studios, as the shop is closing at the end of October.  Dina will still have her physical stamp company, Ink n' Splatter, and I do believe that some of the images left on the DSS site will be reborn as actual stamps.  The DT members are all saddened by this news, but we totally understand Dina's reasons for doing so.  I know that I will for sure miss being on this awesome team!

So, my card features the super cute Bumble BeccaIsn't she adorable sitting on that huge pumpkin with her equally huge lollipop?  Man, I don't know if I could even eat that size of lollipop!  I paired this cute image with 2 papers from the Bumble Buzz 6x6 paper pack and colored her with alcohol markers to match.  I *tried* to make her hair look curly...not sure if I succeeded or not, but hey I gave it a shot!  I die cut my image with a Spellbinders circle die and popped it up with thin foam tape.  The adorable die cut bees are from 2 different Momenta sets and I adhered the larger ones to the image circle with glue and added a thicker foam tape underneath their heads.  The little guys are glued down flat.  I used my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen to add LOTS of shimmer onto the wings, the lollipop, her "antennae," and to all the bees.  My card measures 5.5" square.
