Birthday Card and Challenges

Hi everyone.  I made this card for my stash and I decided to try a few new things.  This is a digital image from Funky Kits and is a  Sugar Nellie (I am SO glad they have digis!) I cut her out with my Nestie and then I embossed and then I used distress ink while the image was still in the Nestie.  This is new to me and..obviously needs work LOL.  The image was sliding out from under, I am sure I will get the hang of it. The very bottom paper is a digi paper from a kit, this is a very old file and I am sorry I don't know who to credit.  The digi patterned paper is a freebie from Bearly Mine Designs. Donna has tons of beautiful digi paper and card inserts.  I just ordered a couple of cd's that have 700 papers.  I know I know..budget but what a great price for 700 papers! The sentiment is a freebie from Bizzy Becs. The flowers and rhinestones are from my stash and the flourish is new..newer. I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
  1. Make it Colorful-Warm or Cool
  2. Aly's Sunday Challenge-Things with Wings
  3. Catered Crop- Recipe-Paper Flowers, Distress ink,
