Spring Color Challenge at H2H

Hi Everyone - How is it already Wednesday and I just feel like I'm getting my week started.  Anyway, here is this weeks challenge at Heart 2 Heart challenges blog.  It is a Spring Color Challenge.  The actual challenge is to use the CTMH colors Sunkiss Yellow, Sweet Leaf green and Sky blue.  Unfortunately I do not have the Sunkiss Yellow color - What you say there is a CTMH color that I don't have  - yes it is true.  So I used Buttercup Yellow instead.
Here is my springy card:

The cute bee stamp set is from B1374 Bee Happy and the flower border is from a retired set called C1308 Be True.  I just cut one piece of cardstock from each color at 1 5/8" x 4", inked the edges with the same color ink and laid them out together on my stamping surface.  Then I stamped the flower border using black ink.  I then glued them to the front of my standard white cardstock base leaving an even border around each piece.  I used my Marvy 2 1/2" scallop circle punch to punch out a white daisy piece and a black piece.  I stamped the bee and sentiment on it and then used my waterbrush to color it in and used a sponge to ink the edges in Sky blue.
It's hard to tell in this picture, but I used my dry embossing stylist to go around the scalloped edges which made them curl up and then attached it to the black scallop circle off-setting the edges so the black shows. 
Then I just used 3-d foam tape to attach to the card front.  Last I had to add some sparkle, so I used the Z1313 glitz Stardust on the wings, and the dots on the flower border.
Thanks for looking and I hope spring comes soon!
