twice in one day!

Well what about that, nothing for weeks then 2 cards in 24 hours! This one was for a particular challenge that i wanted to enter, i really struggled to stop at this as i really wanted to keep going and add more, but had to rein in the urge :-)

To make this card i have used my new card-io stamps - Gerbera Garden, they are one of three sets i got recently, but this is my first attempt at using certainly won't be my last, i love the little bee. I used a variety of inks, distress, memento and papermania, the bees were coloured in with a promarker and the wings and flower centres were highlighted with Kuratake's wink of stella pens. Sadly my camera is dying so i couldn't get a better picture and pick up on the sparkle...but they really do 'wink' as you move the card.

I would like to enter this into the following challenge:
