Friendly Flowers MMSC53 SNSDD18

Wow! Seems like it's been forever since I made a card. Been trying to catch up from vacation to CA and Mother's Day! This card is for 3 challenges:
1. Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge - MMSC53 - found here: http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/2010/05/midnight-madness-dance-party-sketch.html;
2. Sweet and Sassy Digi Day Challenge - SNSDD18 - found here: http://snrcardiverse.ning.com/group/sweetnsassystamps/forum/topics/513-digi-day-challenge-18; and
3. Splitcoaststampers Technique Lovers Challenge - TLC273 - found here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=491391.
The sentiment is a digital stamp from Sweet and Sassy Designs. I used chalks to give it some color. The printed paper is from the inside of the envelope of a card my sister sent me. The braiding is from a prize package I got from the DT team at Midnight Madness...Thanks!!! The flowers are punched out of Core'dinations cs and stickles added to centers. The two little birds are cut out of the patterned paper envelope inside. tfl It was nice to get back into it, and a fun card to make.
