First multi Challenge Card

Thanks to the lovely Liz who runs the blogging section on the Crafty Salon, i can now do links (next to conquer will be the sidebar lol).
So to celebrate being able to do links i decided to do a multi challenge card.
The image i made using just 3 stamps, a flower, butterly and leaf frond and stazon ink in black, brown and green. I made some masks using stick-it-notes and built up my picture. I find i get best results watercolouring using a waterbrush and inkpads which i squidge onto a plastic lid to make a pallette. I then highlighted the flowers with some stickles (think you will need to enlarge pic to see this. I stamped,glittered and cut out another butterfly then stuck it on with a foam pad. The butterfly on the matted layer i stamped with a pink chalk inkpad. The swirly flowers i stamped with brown stazon. Used liquid pearls in platinum and some diecut flowers to finish.
Challenges this cards fits (well i hope so lol) are
Tuesday taggers which this week is flowers, lots of flowers on this card.
A Spoon Full of Sugar which is floral fantasy this week, the stamped pic does have a bit of a surreal feel and plenty of flowers.
Pile It On which is at least 3 flowers plus another challenge, more than 3 flowers on this card and hopefully i've filled the briefs of the other challenges i have chosen.
Creative Inspirations which is bling, lots of bling (glitter and liquid pearls but you may need to enlarge pic to see all the glitter)
One Stop Craft Challenge which is swirls and pearls, this is the one i am not sure if my card qualifies as i have used liquid pearls and i'm not sure if the swirly flower background is swirly enough appologies to the DT if i have it wrong (i'm very new to challenges).
