Angelica's Day Dream

This first card is some kind of personal record for me... I've made a card before that fits 2 challenges but never more than that! So I thought I'd try for more.... Firstly - here's my card:

Now the challenge details:
The current Pile it on challenge is "Let them eat cake! Some kind of pastry on your project"
I got out my Wacom tablet and drew the yummiest pastry I could think of... a croissant!

so piling the other challenges on
I used the current sketch from Sketch and Stash
the stamp is new, the spotty paper is over one year old :)

Simon says "It's a Stitch up" at the Simon Says Challenge
I included faux stitching (with my trusty multiliner)

Paper Play challenges are asking us to "spot this"
hence the spotty paper and Angelica's spotty socks and headband should work too?!

AND of course Angelica's Day Dream is an Inky Impressions stamp... which takes me back to my starting point.... the Inky Impressions challenge is to include 4 embellishments.
I have 1 brown ribbon, 1 brown flower, 1 pink flower and 1 pink rhinestone!

I did not get my last Inky Impressions challenge Card up in time.... but I thought I'd show it here as I painstakingly hand stitched around the "5"

Thanks for looking! I am off to leave comments for my long neglected blogging buddies.....
See you tomorrow!
