Birthday card

Here's what I've made today, a birthday card using Willow from Tickled Pink Stamps and papers from the Bittersweet and Shades of Halloween sets at Crafty Chaos Designs.
And these are the challenges I made it for:
Please note - a few of them ask for bling or sparkles, I've used a glitter frame for the image and two glittery corner flourishes, click on the pic to enlarge it and see the sparkles)
Lil Lolita Boutique - purple orange and black
Creative Inspirations - birthday
Fab n Funky - use a digi image
Creative Cottage - bling it on
Mami Doodles - girl's birthday with sparkle
Speedy the Cat's Friends' Challenge - buttons and bows
Sketchy Colours - sketch #41
Party Time Tuesdays - anything goes birthday
Digital Tuesday - ribbons/ buttons/bling
A Spoon Full of Sugar - sparkle and shine
Paper Playtime - ribbons buttons and/or bling
Stamp Something Challenge - celebrate
Gingerloft Challenges - glitter or bling
Crafty Calendar - Autumn birthdays
Incy Wincy Designs - glitter or sparkles
Fairy Fun Fridays - ricrac
Papertake Weekly are celebrating their THIRD birthday (huge congratulations ladies!) and the challenge this week is to choose any one of their challenges from the past three years and use that. So, lol, I decided to combine a few of them :P
1st Oct 2007 - swirls or flourishes, 30 Dec 2007 - Bit o' bling, 3rd March 2008 - square cards, 31st March 2008 - making waves (the ricrac), 14th April 2008 - all that glitters14th July 2008 - teenage kicks, 11th August 2008 - button it, 19th January 2009 - Shape up (use at least three shapes, I used hearts, circles and rectangles), 2nd Feb 2009 - hearts and flowers, 23rd June 2009 - delightful downloads (the image), 7th July 2009 - my favourite things (purple is a favourite colour, digi images and papers are my favourite crafting stash, and damask is currently my favourite pattern (hence the background paper)(Oops, I forgot that I changed my mind about which backing paper I would use, and ditched the damask one. Even your favourite things sometimes just aren't quite right :P), 3rd November 2008 - simply sparkling, 10th Nov 2009 - digi sparkle , 2nd March 2010 - buttons bows brads or bling (I used all 4), 30th March 2010 - fill your boots time (anything goes, lol, sorry, couldn't resist :P), 18th May 2010 - say it with flowers, 24 Aug 2010 - 3-2-1 (3 heart-shaped buttons, 2 dps and 1 piece of ricrac, OR 3 colours, 2 bows and 1 image)
LOL, have I mentioned that I get a kick out of combining challenges? :P
