One Card - Three Challenges!

Penny Black Saturday, Cute Card Thursday and Papertake Weekly!
Hello everyone. At last, I have a card! This card was made for my neice, who is 2 today. The base card is a square Anita's one, covered with 'Provence Polka' from The Paper Company. The strip of CS down the side is from my stash and has been run through the Bug with the 'Spots & Dots' embossing folder. The image is, I think, Penny Black which I received from Josianne and is coloured with the Watercolour pencils and Twinkling H2Os I got for Christmas. It is matted onto CS from my stash and cut with my new circle nesties in the Bug. The greeting is from Craftwork Cards and the small flowers are from WH Smith with adhesive gems from Dovecraft added to the middle.

I am making this card my entry into 3 challenges as it covers them also.

The first is Penny Black Saturday Challenge, which i haven't entered before. This one was to use 'embossing' and I have done with the strip down the side of the card. I have also embossed the flowers in a way too.
The second is the Cute Card Thursday Challenge, again, one I haven't entered before. This one was to use any 'new craft goodies you received for Christmas'. I hae used my watercolour pencils, twinkling H2O's and my classic and scalloped circle nesties.
And, finally, the third is the Papertake Weekly Challenge. This week, the theme is to use 'Spots'. I have used a spotty background paper, circle nesties and spots and dots embossing folder. The adhesive gems in the middle of the flowers are also spots.

I have also used my new stamp which I got from Ebay on the back of my card. You can get the link for the stamp from Bev's blog here. Thanks very much, Bev!

Anyway, I am quite pleased with this card and now I need to go and buy a birthday present. Why do I always leave everything to the last minut lol?!
