Everything at once!

Hi all,
This will probably be my only post this weekend so I thought I'd better make it a good one!
I hope that this card meets 8 ............... EIGHT................... yes 8 challenges!!!!
Firstly here is the sketch I followed from Delightful sketches (number 7).

And here is the card I made following it:

Recipe:  Black and white card for the backing paper - from an oriental pack I bought from Readicut.  The scalloped black and white paper around the image from the same pack.  The image was from There's Magic In The Air.  The small scalloped shape was from my stash and has a Clarity Stamp sentiment stamped and heat embossed on to it. (I used purple ink and clear embossing powder to do this).

The purple rose paper is from my stash - again in a pack from Readicut.  The two little white brads were from my stash and the little purple flower was lifted from a sentiment pack I had in my draw.  The two purple ribbons were from my ribbon hoard which I always get from Crafty Ribbons.
So here is the list of challenges I hope this card will qualify for:
Pile it On - Black, White and 1 other colour (purple)
Pollycraft - Black, White and 1 other colour
There's Magic In the Air - Use the image and emboss somewhere on your card.
Ooh La La - Floral Fantasy
Charisma Cardz - Flower Power
Penny's Challenge - Use scallops
Think Ink Tuesday - Recipe - 1 image, 2 Different ribbons, 3 layers and use scallops
Oh boy, I am exhausted now after all that - I need Wine!!
