Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #51

I feel like there should be some horse galloping music playing behind me these days like there used to be in the old western movies....I always seem to be rushing/galloping to complete a project, post a project or get a card in the mail or "heaven's to Betsy".....get the Easter goodies mailed in time for Easter!  
That being said, I am rushing in here with a card I made for Speedy the Cat's Challenge this week.  I love collage work and when I saw they were having a collage challenge, I knew I wanted to try and get a card made for it.  
I love this Happy Pansies set I got from Mark's Finest Papers several weeks ago and I though it would be perfect for a collage card. 

The background is done with Tim Holt's Distress Ink technique using "Chipped Sapphire", "Shabby Shutters" and "Mustard Seed".  After it dried, I used "Forest Moss" Distress Ink to stamp the flourish and leaves with some cheap foam stamps I found in Michaels many months ago (for $1.00).  I then stamped the bee and sentiment from the Happy Pansies set in "Chipped Sapphire" ink and I colored in the little bodies with a touch of yellow Copic marker.  The pansy cluster was stamped, colored (with Copic Markers) and cut separately then secured with Pop Dots.  I really like the way it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a joyous Easter!

Hi Cheri,
I know what you mean about galloping everywhere. Thank goodness we are on term break here until Wednesday. Then it will be off and racing again with school, work and life in general!
Love your card... gorgeous pansies.
Have popped over from the Outlawz and am following you now.

You did an amazing job on this Cheri!! I for one find pansies one of the harder flowers to color. And that background is a true work of art! The whole card just sings!!
Have a Blessed Easter : )
