Spring card... if it will EVER come to us!

So I am finding that I enjoy the challenges on the blogs WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY too much!  One thing I really love doing is seeing how many I can combine into one project.  It gives me an incredible challenge instead of just a challenge.  I am sickly competitive so I compete against myself.  I want to see if I can make something better than the time before.

This is my first time using a flower or button on a project!  I really like it too.  I can't believe that I like it this much and now it is ONE MORE thing to spend MONEY on!  YIKES poor hubby... less money and bigger laundry piles are in his future :).

Below the pic is the information on the challenges I put this car in!

THANK YOU so much for visiting my blog.  Thanks in advance to new followers and for blog love!

Isn't the blue card stock so cute?!  It is from core'denations
The "Time 4" came from the Cuttin' Up, it actually said "Time 4 fun" and I cut the fun off.
"Spring" is from Stretch Your Imagination.
The paper flower is from Bazzill Basics Paper.
The "pearls" were something I picked up for a buck at A.C. Moore.
I used scraps for the flowers and for the strip of paper on the bottom of the card.
The "stiching" is with my favorite Fiskars gel pens.
The card is 9x4

Peachy Keen Stamps has a sketch challenge going on that I followed for my layout on this card.  The twist, add some bling.  Notice the bottom right hand corner ;)
Claudia and Company have a recipe challenge.  This was my hardest one to follow! 
Stitching (real or faux)- I am really starting to like stiching
2 patterned papers- my flowers
buttons- center of my flower
a sentiment
circles- button and pearls
scallops- This was my harder one to fit in.  I used scallop scissors to cut the pattern paper stripe
Pause Dream Enjoy challenges us to do a fun fold.  I used a long fold.
Cricut Cardz Challenge is to do a tall card, so I did and then laid it on it's side.
 For Fun Challenges and Patti Lynn Creations is to do a spring card!  I LOVED doing something springy.  Winter is depressing me.
Paper Craft Star  challenges you to make a spring card using specific colors.
Tuesday Throw Down is to use scraps.  That is what I used for the lettering, flowers, and paper strip.
Cooking With Cricut is challenging us to use a time piece or reference time in our card. 

Wow! I am tired just typing all that :)
