Card challenge

I still seem to be addicted to challenges at the moment and the one over at Daring Card Makers has again caught my eye.  This week the challenge is "The Darling Bugs Of May" as soon as I saw it I knew what stamps to use:

Have had this Tilda for a while now and have only used her once so I knew I just had to dust her down and ink her up!  I love Magnolia stamps but they are so big once masked and stamped with backgrounds aren't they.  This card is A5 and the main image is so big it doesn't leave much room for anything else - I am saying that because I don't think she would normally sit quite so near to a bee hive would she!!  Anyway for this card I have used the sketch SSS108 over at Sweet Stop Sketches so I would like to enter it into their challenge too.  Other stash used is:
Fancy Pants papers - Road Show - Delicate dots and Chic Stripes, sizzix beehive and bees, Tilda with Bee, Spring Tree and Old Stand stamps (all Magnolia), Just bee cos I care stamp is by Little Claire Designs.  Promarkers used are: Blush, Saffron, Buttercup, Canary, Cinnamon, Caramel, Terracotta, Ginger, Spice, Sandstone, Pastel Blue, Denim Blue, China Blue, Cornflower, Meadow Green, Apple, Sunkissed Pink, Blossom and Black.  Distress inks used are: Wild Honey, Mustard Seed and Peeled Paint.  Have finished the card off with bling for the bees eyes and string for their flying paths which I have stapled in place with my tiny attacher.

Thanks for looking :)
