A challenge or two

Evening Everyone
Well, the family are safely settled into their little house in Devon after a few stops along the way. Unfortunately Saskia was sick several times on the journey but Megan looked after her in true big Sister fashion. I'm sure Mum and Dad will find her a little treat to say Thank you, I think she deserves it.
I have had a fairly successful days crafting although I don't like all this quiet - no screaming or arguments it seems very weird lol.
This is a card that I was asked to make for a friend to give to his brother. I've made it using a sketch over at Sketch Saturday so I am entering it into their challenge. Check it out.
It has been made using one of the lovely Lili of the Valley images from their die cut sheet Take it Easy cut out with a Nestie. I've added some faux stitching around the edge.
The challenge over at Allsorts is a recipe - 3 papers, 2 ribbon and one flower so I am entering it into that challenge as well. The flower has been made using a Magnolia DooHickey Christmas Poinsettia.
There are several greetings on the card including this one from Lili of the Valley. Brother is taken from a Woodware clear set called Male Relatives (FRCL079) and Birthday Wishes is from another clear set, this time made by Hero Arts.
All the papers and ribbon are from my stash. How come this never seems to get any smaller no matter how many cards I make?
I hope you like the card. Don't forget to check out the challenges.
Love and hugs
