Five Challenges with One Card!

I'm feeling kinda big for my britches! lol I hope I get them all correct! My original intention was to make four cards today. This card proved so incredibly challenging! The swirls almost did me in! Let me tell you all about it. :)

Chocolate Coffee and CardsChallenge #37 - Layout is a card sketch. I believe I followed the layout but sometimes those are kinda hard to interpret. :-\

Color Me Creative Challenge #66 Reds, Reds and More Red wants lots of red on the card. I feel I covered that fairly well with this card! :)

Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog's Challenge #156 - Make Your Own Flowers wants handmade flowers. Hands down... I'm all over this one! I've been on a flower-making bend no one could top! I made all the flowers on this card. :)

Simply Betty StampsFacebook Fan Page Challenge #2 - Elaine asks for swirls and ribbon with the image provided for the challenge. I did use a ribbon on the bottom of the card and the background paper has swirls on the left hand side and bottom of the card. I realized after I was done I covered most of the swirls but you can still make some out. Also, the stamp I used has the "Y" in a swirl and I added Stickles in Star Dust to bring that out. :)

Raisin Boat's Challenge 10 - Mother's Day is asking for a Mother's Day card. I am gonna give this to one of my sisters for Mother's Day. I'm almost tempted to include a kitty! She likes to go on and on about how I always show up at her house empty-handed. :-\ Can you believe it? My sister can be a pip sometimes. ;) lol

Here is the card:
Let me tell you how I put the card together. All card stock is from StoryTellers Club. Ribbon, doily and tag are from my stash. The larger flower is made from a small daisy punch and tissue paper. The two smaller flowers are made with a petite daisy punch with red card stock. I added "leaves" to the small flowers with a petite snowflake punch and green card stock. All punches are from Michael's. The black beads are from Studio 112 at Hobby Lobby. I added shimmer to the larger flower with some Tsukineko Pssst Shimmer Spritz in Frost. I dabbed the two smaller flowers with Stickles in Star Dust. I stamped "For You" on the tag with Raisin Boat's Formal Phrases clear stamp set. The image is from Simply Betty Stamps FB Fan Page as I mentioned previously. She's popping off the card with foam dots and colored in Copic markers. :)
