Buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz honey bee, honey bee!! F is for....... Flowers

Good morning,
Is it just me or is this weather a little confused at the moment. I drove all the way to Leistershire on Sunday to check out a papercrafting show as I will be exhibiting there myself next year and it was more like a summers day!
Anyway it has seriously got me in a sunny mood and I thought I would tackle a yellow themed card. As some of you already know yellow is most definately not my colour and I have to really put my mind to it to produce anything that I'm happy with, so today I would like to share with you my Sunny Honey Tilda card. This is my DT card for The ABC Challenge which this time is 'F is for.... Flowers' a really easy challenge theme so why not give it a go, also we are being sponsored by the fabulous Wild Orchid Crafts.

I have used the fabulous Honey Tilda and gently sat her on the Magnolia Big Daisy. I have coloured my image with ProMarkers and chalked the background. I used Papermania's new white mulberry paper flowers and coloured them with my ProMarkers to match the papers. This great layout was inspired by the sketch over at Friday Sketchers and I used Doodlebug Pot Pourri DP's to create it. I alos used one of the beautiful Martha Stewart punches to create the border, Nestabilities for the frame and accented with Bo Bunny Double Dot Ribbon, Stardust Stickles and Prima Gems.
I am entering this into the following challenges:
