Hedgy and Bee

Good afternoon to all my crafty friends followers and visitors, hope you are having a lovely week so far. I'm having a really mad week-working in a school at this time of year is just full on crazy (wait a minute, every term is full on crazy!!!)
I'm sitting with a nice cup of coffee catching my breath before doing all the normal 'home' jobs and then its off out for a meal with all the family. We helped my daughter sort out her garden a few weeks ago and as a thank you she's taking us all out so I'm really looking forward to it and it will be lovely to all be together.
Well, onto my card for today and I've coloured up a gorgeous image I won recently in the Pink Gem challenge-I can't resist a hedgehog!
I've used my Promarkers to colour him and die cut him with an X cut die and made a faux nestie. I used papers from Lili of the Valley and punched out some flowers, leaves and some corners.
I die cut a butterfly and added gems, glitter and glossy accents (to the wellington boot flowers). I used a Martha Stewart edger punch along the left side too. The sentiment is another from Netty's Cards:

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
