One Card Four Challenges

I was home sick today with a headache. It seems like the past three or four Thursdays I wake up with a headache and feel like I am getting a cold and a sore throat. So I went to the Dr to see what is going on. Turns out that when you have a 4o minute drive in the winter and you run your car heater you dry out your sinus causing headaches and a sore throat. Well I feel silly but I am happy to know what is going on.
I took some time today to make a card for the Color Throwdown Challenge #79 which was to use blush blossom, sage shadow and riding hood red. I bought a new MS punch the other day and I just love it. I had to cut the card a little to let the the liner show. It reminds me of a petticoat. The base card is SU Sage Shadow, that I stamped with a SU stamp and ran through the CB with a small CB folder. The DP is from a SU pad. I had the Riding Hood Red ribbon and the paper matched so I think it is the same color. I cut and embossed the flowers with a SU folder . Then I used a little Rose Red to sponge and highlight the flowers. I used glue dots to add the ribbon. The inside is stamped with SU Flight of the Butterfly. These pictures are really bad. This is a very pretty card but the pictures look lame.
The sketch is from Sketches by Tamara Challenge #106. I went to Pile It On to look for motivation and found her challenge. Pile It On's challenge is love. I think when you wish someone, "a day as happy as happy can get," you are wishing them love. What do you think? Cute Card Thursday Challenge 99 is love also. So this card would work for four challenges. I love it when I can post a card on multipul challenges. Its the comment. I love comments. The more challenges the more comments. So there you have it! I need to know what you think good or bad.
Thanks for stopping,
