4 challenges in 1 card

Well this card has taken me a long time today but I have had fun putting it together. Dotties World challenge this week was Step Into Spring so I went for Holly in the garden from the Holly & Madison Collection available at Charmed Cards and Crafts and I have actually digitally paper pieced her with papers from a kit called Summer Lovin' because it uses the colours pink & green which along with flowers is the challenge over at Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge. Although it wasnt difficult to digi paper piece I did find it time consuming getting all my layers round the right way! I based the layout of my card on the sketch from Sketch and Stash #31 and my new stash is the digi kit which I bought recently with my winnings from Scrap That Idea, this kit is by Stacey of Stacey's Scraps and I love all the different elements that go with it and the addon of plain card that actually looks like bazzil! the only other addition I used to Stacey's kit is the flourishes top left and bottom right which are actually brushes that were part of a freebie set from Cottage Arts. The 4th challenge I am going for is the one over at Cute Card Thursday which is Dimensions (or lots of layers) well I have gone for the lots of layers as this card has 13 layers not including the image which is made up of 7 layers on its own!
