Flutter Bees

Where has our lovely Spring weather gone??? It feels like Autumn today! lol
This card is for a few more of those 'Easter/Spring' themed challenges: Charisma Cardz; Fussy & Fancy Friday; PaperPlay; and Simon Says Stamp...let's hope they'll help bring back the sunshine!
I followed the sketch from Sunday Sketch & Stamp, and cobbled together an image for the 'Butterflies & Bees' Penny Black Saturday Challenge. I had lots of PB stamps with either butterflies or bees...but none with both, so decided to make my own: the bunny is from the 'Bunny Friends' stamp (I masked off his friends! lol), the bees are from the 'Every Which Way' set (they were holding an envelope...but I masked that off before inking the stamp), and the butterflies are from the 'Party Critters' set. The sparkly papers are from the 'Pocket Full of Posies' stack (by DCWV), the flowers are from the matching die cuts pack, and the sentiment stamp is by Hero Arts.
