Almost the weekend

Well it's the middle of the working week so only two more days before the weekend yay!! why is it that the week days seem so long and the weekends so short? Well I have completed another card today, seem to be managing one a week at the moment which is better than none but really would like it to be more, will have to readjust my time management skills me thinks. it would also most probably help if I got out of bed a little earlier when I am on a late shift and do something productive with the time lol.
Anyway here is my card for this week
 sorry that the image is a little blurred but I scanned it and because the flowers held the card itself slightly away from the surface of the scanner it has blurred the image.
The image is of course Penny Black coloured with ProMarkers, the flower centre and bumble bee's wings have been highlighted with glamour dust, all the card and paper is from my stash. The frame and swirl are die cuts made using my Cuttlebug, the pearls and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the corners are peel off's that I have coloured and the butterflies are punched from yellow card then coloured using distress ink and their edges highlighted with Promarker with little pearls added for their bodies. The scanned image doesn't really show their true colour they look orange/peachy colour in the pic. but in real life they are actually a pinky colour.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Penny Black Saturday Challenge Week 185 - Crafty Bargains (my increased ProMarker stash - 3 for £5 from one of my local craftshops)
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Happy Highlights (the glamour dust on the bumble bee's wings and flower centre)
Hotshot Craft blog Challenge #3 - Flowers
