One little card...so many challenges!

OK so i've kinda gone all out on this one and managed to combine 6 different challenges which i think is a record for me.
...
Firstly i followed Donna's fab sketch over at Stamping for the Weekend #5, Pile It On has the prompt to use 3 different embellishments, then there is both Secret Crafter #39 which is to use 3 ribbons and Creative Card Crew #18 which also has ribbons as their prompt.
I managed to squeeze in some Hearts to fulfill the challenge over at A Spoon Full of Sugar #59 and last but by no means least Just Magnolia #12 has Charms as there prompt.

...
I had to make the card in a hurry as i was only told today it was needed for saturday! to be posted tomorrow!!!


but i got there in the end, and i don't think it came out half bad, in fact am rather quite chuffed with it lol
Thanks for coming to visit me, come back any time x
