Multi challenge celebration card


Hello bloggers,

can you tell my new years resolution was to be more active on the old blog? Here I am again with a card I just finished this morning. And I have to say, I love it! Ifound a few challenges I liked the look/sound of and decided I challenge myself to incorporate all of them together with an image I have been itching to use. And the result is this card...

What do you think? I REALLY like it and I rarely say that about my cards.
I am entering in the following challenges:

I used one of the adorable images from A Day for Daisies, coloured with Copics, and mainly SU cardstock. The green layer was stamped with Polka Dot Basics by PTI and the sentiment is from PTI as well - Out on a limb sentiments.
Ribbon is from Pebbles and I did some handstitching next to it. The flower is punched from different punches by SU and Woodware.
