Like the flower and the bee...

Hi everyone, I've been having a relaxing day in my craft room, just for a change, hehe. Here's a card I've made using the sketch from Sunday sketch and stamp.
The image is a Whimsy stamp which came free with Papercraft Essentials magazine, as is the sentiment, which I've cut out using the Whimsy mini ticket die. I've coloured the image with Promarkers and added glitter using Sakura pens. The bumble bee's wings have Glamour Dust on them. The papers are Beach Babe, by Fancy Pants Designs, which were free with Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine. I've also added pink and black cardstock and some ribbon and pearls from my stash.

 I would also like to enter this for the following:-
