A card for 3 challenges

Flower Bear

I don't seem to make many cards at the moment that aren't for one of my DTs, so it was nice today to sit down & make this card and find three challenges to enter it into. I would have posted it earlier this evening (it's now gone 10pm) but I had to take my daughter Georgia to A&E this evening as she'd bashed her hand and we thought she might have broken something as it was very swollen & very tender. Luckily though nothing is broken and we were only there for an hour, which is very good by A&E standards, so if you're going to have an accident I guess early Sunday evening is quite a good time to do so!!

Anyway, on to my card, I bought this LOTV stamp at the NEC in November & this is the first time I've inked it up! Shame on me! I also dug out my CraftRobo to do the ovals as my biggest oval nestie was too small, and I'm glad to say that my Robo was behaving and cut through the Stampin' Up! cardstock beautifully, which is doesn't always do. I am actually planning to sell my Robo as I've now got a Cricut but it did come in handy today....hmmm should I keep it....??? LOL

So here's the details:
Image - Lily of the Valley, coloured with ProMarkers
DSP - SU Tea & Crumpets
Cardstock - Whisper White; Barely Banana
Ribbon - SU Chocolate Chip
Flowers - cut with X-cut punch
Buttons & brads from stash

I'm entering this card into the following:
ABC Challenge - One paper
Passion for ProMarkers - Buttons & Bows (any colour PM's)

Nearly time for bed & see you all in the morning for another challenge over at Sophisticats
