Waterlily skiing and some challenges


Hi all and a happy weekend!!
I made today's card with a few challenges in mind.
The image is Waterlily skiing from Penny Black. I had received a few images from a image swap I was in, and after that I just had to have the stamp, and I was lucky enough to find it on ebay.
It was colored with copics and prisma markers. I actually colored it a few months ago when I was practicing.
The designer paper is from Basic Grey, eva collection. I added a little bit of stickles glitter to it for some sparkle. The other papers are stampin up, melon mambo, kiwi kiss and white. Since the paper was already so busy, I tried to use less embellishments, but they are my favorites: pearls, narrow grosgrain ribbon and paper flowers.
And these are the challenges I made it for:

Friday Sketchers sketch ( a little bit reversed)
Stamp something (something with your favorite embellishment)
Cute Card Thursday (color challenge pink and green)

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, the complete recipe is below.
