This week's The Cat's Pajamas challenge is hosted by Toni, who challenged us to make a card that included:

Embossing (dry or wet)
and at least 3 circles

An interesting challenge, indeed!

Here is my card. It stated out different in my mind, but this is how it ended up.

Is something embossed? Check! The background and circles are embossed with Cuttlebug embossing folders.

Is there bling? Check! The bee's wings have glitter applied to them to make them sparkly.

Are there at least 3 circles? Check! My circles became elements, which were made by embossing punched circles and hitting them with some ink.

Stuff used:
Stamps: "Bee a Girl" from the "Hearts and Flowers" set by The Cat's Pajamas
Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin' Up Close to Cocoa, Old Olive, and Summer Sun
Ink: Versafine Vintage Sepia, SU Close to Cocoa, Prismacolor Pencils
Other: Stickles "Star Dust" glitter glue, 3/4" circle punch, "Bloom Dots" and "Distressed Stripes" Cuttlebug embossing folders, sponge dauber
