It's A Good Day in May

Someday I hope I can make flowers as beautiful as some of the talented card makers out there....I am not saying any one's name, but you know who I mean.
But in the mean time, I am using these "store bought" flowers on this card that I made for a few challenges.  Opened the petals on flowers to indicate various stages of growth. Picture is not the best but running out of time.

Challenges:
Joan's Gardens: Use any size or kind of butterflies on your card, Use some type of scallops or lattice, Use yellow or gold colors, Use a pattern paper back ground.
Friends of Speedy TV Challenge: Make a card that has to do with the month of May. Roses bloom in the month of May and the first day of May (May Day)  is a good day!
Craft Your Passion Challenge: Use lot of Texture
Lollipops: Anything Goes
Anything Goes Challenge: Anything with Wings
Oldie But Goodie: Die Cuts and Punches....the Martha Stewart punch and flowers are older than 6 months
Papertake Weekly Challenge: Anything Goes

Supplies:
Stamp: Mark's Finest Papers Special Lion Set-great sentiments in this set
Butterfly Stamps unknown-Had these already stamped from some time ago...think it was borrowed
Copics Y26 for Butterflies
Ink: Versamark
Gold Embossing Powder
Papers: White, Green, and Yellow CS all from stash. SU Pattern Paper
Punch: Martha Stewart Lattice ( Used 2 strips placed side by side)
Dies: Cheery Lynn Olive Branch (Another purchase from last weekend)
Metallic Thread for antennae on large Butterfly
Flowers: Prisma

What happened to April....it's May already!
I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
