Whippin' Up some Spring with a Recipe Challenge at Catch the Bug

It's Saturday, which means a new challenge over at Catch the Bug today!

It's all about the
We want to see
4 Layers (at least), Ribbon, and a Flower

My card features an oldie Bugaboo Stamps floral image, Mini Set - Flowers
I used the FB5  image from this set. There are many pretty flowers to choose from in this set, but I was drawn to this one because of the butterfly and ladybug that are included in the image. I already knew that I was going to use the Silhouette cutting file for the bee frame, so I thought the extra little bugs would be a great addition!
To start, I layered some pretty MME dp on black, then added that to my white card base. I had punched my black card stock using a Martha Stewart punch, and added some 1/2" black and white flower ribbon from my stash.
I colored my image in PSE, and took it into my Studio program to do a Print to Cut for my base of the frame. Then I cut the yellow layer of the frame, and then the black. I used Glossy Accents to glue it all together. I added some glossy accents to the ladybug dots, head and the butterfly wings to give them some dimension. I put a few dabs of Stickles Star Dust glue on the floral centers for just a touch of bling. The frame is attached to the card with pop dots.
I typed up my sentiment in PSE, and then took that into my Studio program to do another Print to Cut.  I cut some flowers (sorry, not sure where I found that cut - they've been in my files for a very, very long time!).  I used some pretty pearl brads to attach the flowers to my sentiment. My sentiment is attached to the card with pop dots.
