Pure Joy - A Card for Mojo Monday Plus Three More Challenges

Here is my card for this week's Mojo Monday challenge. It also qualifies for three other challenges: Pile it On, Digital Tuesday and A Spoonful of Sugar.

The Mojo Monday sketch is shown below. I chose to use a narrower ribbon on the side and added some flowers in that space. Otherwise, it's pretty close.
I just found the Pile It On challenge a few weeks ago and this is my first time to participate. This challenge has it's own theme, and in addition you must combine it with at least one other challenge. Perfect for me. You know how I love to combine my challenges. :) The theme this week is to use at least three flowers. I used four - and combined it with three other challenges as already mentioned. I made the flowers with my Retro Flower and tiny daisy punches. I added rhinestone flowers to the centers.
The theme for A Spoonful of Sugar this week is Floral Fantasy. There are flowers in the image and the background paper, in addition to the punched flowers I added.
Finally, the theme for Digital Tuesday is "bling". I got pleny o' bling goin' on - stickles on the girl's headband and butterfly, glitter on her skirt, rhinestones in the centers of the flowers in the image, rhinestones on the butterfly's body and flower shaped rhinestones in the punched flowers. The image is another from my favorite digital illustrator Maurie at Mo's Digital Pencil. This image is called Soakin' Up the Joy and is available as a freebie on Mo's blog. I just love this image. She looks so happy!
Thanks for stopping by. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
