For my card, I used Paper Smooches So Fairy Cute, Twiggy Florets and Uplifters stamp sets

I water colored my images with Ranger Oxide Inks 
I colored the flower center with a metallic gold pen and then colored on top with a Copic marker. The gold pen resisted the Copic marker. The effect was unexpected but super cool.
I added some glitter pen detail to the bees wings.
