ATS Wednesday Challenge: Suspension Cards

Hello! It's Wednesday already -- I can't believe we're halfway through another week! Three of my four kids go back to school next week, and we haven't bought school supplies yet! It's on my growing "to do" list, though! :)

Today's ATS Wednesday Challenge is Suspension Cards. I'm glad Jen came up with this one, because I had never made one before! There is a great tutorial at Splitcoaststampers HERE.
This card measures 4.25" x 4.25". I knew right away I wanted to use this adorable bee from Bear Hugs. The smaller panel around him was stamped with bubble wrap -- it looks like honeycomb, don't you think? The larger background panel was embossed with my Cuttlebug and the embossing folder from the With Gratitude Combo Pack. The combo packs come with an A2 embossing folder and a die cutting plate -- check them out! To finish the card, I added Prima flowers, brads, and May Arts dotted organdy ribbon.

Play along with us! Use keyword ATSDTC13 when uploading to a public gallery. You can play along with any Wednesday Challenge at any time -- just go to the Wednesday Challenge Thread to see all of them! Check out the Wednesday Challenge Gallery to see all the challenge creations -- we'd love to see yours there, too!

Thanks for the visit today -- I really appreciate it! I hope your day it is a great one! :)
