Happy Bee-Day!

I'm combining four challenges on this card: the fab Sketch Saturday sketch; the Penny Black Saturday Challenge theme of 'Embossing'; Allsorts Challenge's 'Wings' theme; and the Everybody Art Challenge to make a 'Birthday Card'. The image is 'Bee Costume' by Penny Black...coloured with watercolour pencils, then I added 'Kaleidoscope' embossing powder to all of the wings. The patterned paper (just seen behind the image) is from the 'Pocket Full of Posies' stack by DCWV, and the sentiment stamp is by Stampendous. I embossed the yellow background card with the Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' folder, and added a few brads from Poppicrafts.
