7 Challenges in one (and don't you love it when something goes right?)

Happy Monday everyone!
Back to work for hubby after the long weekend but at least I got another card while he was in charge of the 3 rugrats! LOL
This time the card covers 7 challenges and it feels really good to have it completed (plus I think it's a cutie so that's another bonus :))
The challenges it covers are:
Charisma Cardz - use buttons
Magnolia-licious - Sketch
Dannis Dreams - Flutterby Wednesdays, I used a butterfly bead on my hatpin.
Creative Inspirations - Masking, I love this technique and used it twice to make Tilda look like she was looking out of a window over a window box.
Just Magnolia - Simply Charming, use a charm on your card.
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Summer.
Copic Creations - Brunette hair, this was hard for me as I have the colors for blonde but struggle on the browns even though I'm a brunette myself!

I used the wonderful Tilda Standing with Hairbow Stone Wall and the window box (sorry I couldn't find a link). The dp are Nana's Nursery Baby Boy by DCWV. The border punch is Martha Stewart. The flowers are my favortite part of the card. The paper flowers are Bazzill Basics and I didn't have a larger flower to make the trio look right in the right color. So I went to my jar of white "silk" flowers and found these wonderful polka dotted ones. I grabbed my Copic BV00 Mauve Shadow and colored the petals, it was the perfect color and I was so happy I almost jumped off my chair :) The sentiment is K & Co and I added Diamond stickles to Tilda's wings, bows and flowers to match the glitter on the sentiment. I embossed the green panel with my trusty Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder.
The hatpin was made with items from Walmart and Michaels.

The inside is simple, just a small additional sentiment below the journaling space.

I wanted to give a close up of cute Tilda so you could see the glitter (sorry for the lighting)
I hope you like her and have a great rest of your Monday.
