This is for a Bee-Day (birthday). The "enjoy" square covers a bad boo-boo, but we'll buzz by that and get to the sweet stuff. This card is for 3 challenges:
Color - Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Mossy Meadow (added a little Pumpkin Pie for the flower center)
Dessert = Summer Treats - lots of summer birthdays in our family. That means lots of birthday treats!
Technique - Watercolor lifting - It was my first time doing this technique. I love how the embossing holds the color so the rest can be lifted or lightened, revealing the clear embossed images.
Alphabet Challenge - Letter W - watercolor, wings on the bumble bee, and bonus challenge of using no white.
Thank you for looking!

Oh, this is really pretty! I love the orange flower centers and that is something I forget I can do instead of the usual boring brown. LOL. The watercolor lifting technique gives your image this nice soft serene look I love. The bee is just adorable. I chuckled about your boo-boo, but I am chuckling with you because I seem to be making an awful lot of boo boos myself these days. You covered it up brilliantly! A fabulous card for 3 wonderful challenges- that is amazing! ~Karen.

Diane this is gorgeous! Your watercoloring lifting turned out wonderfully and the colors are beautifully presented. Of course, now I'm very curious about what is under that E! Wonderful card, great job!
