I Know Why They Call It A Challenge Now!

Hello again and many thanks for visiting. I really don't know how some crafters have the time to post a new project everyday it takes me ages to actually make a card, though most of that time is sorting through hoards of stuff to find what I'm actually looking for! I long to have an organized craft room like Marlene it would be like dieing and going to heaven!!

 My card today was made specifically for 2 challenges the first is 'Emma's Sketch' over at Sunday Sketch And Stamp its a great sketch and I've decided I like to follow a sketch it gives me somewhere to start!
I combined it with the 'Who Said 3's a Crowd' challenge at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge
- wow this made it more difficult! 3 patterned papers, 3 ribbons and 3 flowers makes for 1 very busy card!
I'm really pleased with what I 've done with the ribbons and will use that again in the future.
I've taken my new Buddy Lisa's advice and also entered this into the Sarah Hurley Challenge where the theme is 'Birthday Girl'
Thanks Lisa x
I am also entering this card into the Magical Monday Challenge  they have a theme of 'Flowers' I'm not sure if this fits their criteria but as my stamp is Fairytale Tilda I'm hoping it does.
Over at Top Tip Tuesday the theme is also 'Flowers', what a great blog I've already picked up quite a few new ideas!

Stamp: Magnolia Fairy Tale Collection
Papers: Kaiser Craft
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts
Colouring: Copics
Dies: Magnolia Swirl & Martha Stewart Frond Punch
Ribbon & Brads from stash
