Three prizes; three different embellishments. :) Leave a link to your creation in this comment thread along with the three types of embellishments you used.

What a fun challenge, Patter, and congratulations, Layers of Color. Here's my card, using pearls, lace and edge punch for embellishments:

I had a lot of fun for this challenge. I used ric rac, brads and a jewel (the button on the shorts) for my embellishments. I also popped up the balloons & frog on pop dots. I received the images in a RAK and colored them with my colored pencils.

Here's my card:
