Wow! 8 challenges in 1 card!

Hi Everyone,
You know how I did 6 callenges in one card last week?, well I've topped myself this time with 8 in 1!
I've been so busy with other cards that to get every challenge I wanted to do in I had to combine and I hope you like the result :)
This card covers:
Rosie Dee's Color challenge - Pink and Lime
Secret Saturday Color challenge - Pink and Green
Allsorts Theme challenge - Wings (on the butterfly as you can't see Tilda's, hee hee!)
Our Creative Corner Theme challenge - Stars
Sketch Saturday Sketch #56
Just Magnolia Theme challenge - Summer
Pile It On Color challenge - Purple (the butterflies are purple and a little on the stripes of Tilda's shirt)
Lili of the Valley Technique challenge - Paper Piecing (I paper pieced Tilda's shirt and jeans)
Whew, that was a long list and now comes the card :)

I tried to make it so it looked like Tilda was sitting on an open windowsill and the border punch was the curtains.
I used the Tilda with Bee from the Chasing Butterflies collection and colored her with my Copic's and paper pieced her shirt and jeans. I used 2 different border punches both by Fiskars. The sentiment is from The Paper Company and the dp is DCWV Garden Party.

The inside just has coordinating papers from the Garden Party and Spring stacks by DCWV.

Here is a close up of cute Tilda. It looks like she has a halo from the sun but it was too late to restamp so I had to go with it :)
I hope you have a happy rest of your day and be sure to check back tomorrow for a card using the Friday Sketchers latest sketch.

Oh how CUTE, Katie! Love the layout and all the special touches you gave it! And Tilda is just too cute with those sun rays coming out from behind her. Great card!

I'm not a fan of Tilda as lots of people know (it's the lack of nose and mouth thing!), but this is such a pretty card Katie. Your colouring is wonderful!!!

Thank you so much for joining us at Rosie-Dee's this week.

This is a fantastic card you did Katie. Beautiful layout (although that's the challenge sketch, but your card made this sketch even more special)
