Pile it On, Baby!

My cyber pals, Dalis and Vickilyn have started a new challenge blog called Pile it On. The concept behind the blog is to help crafters take advantage of all the challenge blogs available to us! You must combine at least ONE other active challenge with the Pile it On challenge for any given week. Here is my card, which uses FIVE, count 'em 5, challenges.

1. Pile it On - use a non-stamped sentiment. I used some words cut from a sheet of Fancy Pants paper.

2. Sketches by Tamara. I used Sketch #99.

3. 365 Cards Day 104 - Imagine this: Grass. We were supposed to use grass as our inspiration. I thought the green paper and ribbon, plus the sentiment and flowers all said "grass/garden/summer, etc.".

4. CCEE Stampers - Flowers. Think I covered THAT!

5. Fun Frilled - Summertime. I also think I captured that summertime feel.

Here are some closeups of the sentiment and flowers. I am sure some challenge asked for bling, too!

All the papers are Fancy Pants, the cardstock is Bazzill. The flowers are mostly Prima, and the gems are from the craft store. I think I got the ribbon in an ASD kit.

Thanks for looking. And thanks for all the wonderful comments y'all have been leaving me! They make my day, especially the funny ones!
ETA: As my lovely friend Rose informed me, I also meet the challenge for Paper Blooms! Their challenge was to use at least 3 flowers on your card. I sure did that! Thanks Rose!
