Put your sunglasses on........

Good morning everyone;
Well I am still in challenge mode this week and my card today is going to work for 2 different challenges....yay!!
The first one is for The Pink Elephant Challenge #13 and the challenge is Circles and Scallops. It also happens to fit right in with the Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge #50 and the challenge is "Touchy Feely".



This card came about with some color inspiration from my blog friend Cammie. The colors of her card yesterday were black, yellow and white and it looked awesome. I instantly thought how great that color combo would look with my High Hopes Bee. I must admit I have a lot more yellow showing...so it came out a lot brighter....hence the need for sunglasses. I think this card is the brightest and busiest card I have ever made!!!...LOL!!

I embossed the honeycomb image with gold. The sitting bee from High Hopes and the sentiment are embossed with black. I painted the images with Tombow markers. I used my new "atyou Spica glitter pen by Copic" for the wings. The yellow background was stamped with Perfect Medium and the images are the honey pot and the fanciful flower, also from High Hopes. I punched the fern and added the Prima flower. The sentiment is from designs unlimited. I also added some Stickles and dew drops.
I am happy with the way it turned out.....I hope you like it too!

Have a bright and sunny day...and Thanks so much for stopping by...
