Victoria Case meets Charisma cards and Our creative corner

Its weather is horrible, its raining here in Dorset so it gave me an excuse to stay in and make a card.
I have followed a very nice sketch by Charisma Cardz, the image is a digistamp by Victoria Case http://victoriacasestamps.blogspot.com/ Its called Just Ducky, I think she is simply adorable, sooooo cute!!! I have coloured her in with Promarkers, the colours used are Rose pink and Pumpkin, her hair is vanilla and skin colouring is blush, I normally use Ivory for skin but I can't find that colour amongst all my craft stuff at the moment. The sentiment is a stamp from Cuddly Buddly which I have then cut out with my circle and scalloped circle nesties. The flowers are primas. I have put a white button in the centre of each one, I have used 3 small Papermania orange brads in the top right hand corner. The little daisies on the ribbon have been cut from an X-Cut daisy mini punch which I have added a pink gem in the centre. The ribbon is from American Crafts. The Hot pink colour card is actually pearlescent but this does not show up too well in the photo. I have used my new Martha Stewart Lace Doily punch on both sides of the white card strip at the bottom. The drips and the puddle have been covered with crystal lacquer so they look wet. I would never have thought of putting these three colours together but I have decided they work quite well and I am quite pleased with the result.
I am entering the card into these three challenges
1/ Victoria Case http://vcstampchallenges.blogspot.com/2009/07/challenge-8-we-have-color-challenge.html to use Hot Pink, Orange and White which I have done, I have also used one of their images which is compulsory for their challenges.
2/ Charisma Cardz http://charismacardz.blogspot.com/2009/07/challenge-28-get-little-sketchy.html I followed their beautiful sketch
3/ Our Creative Corner http://ourcreativecorner6.blogspot.com/2009/07/occ-challenge-triple-play.html where you must use at least 3 different types of embellishments from their list, I have used buttons, brads, ribbon and crystal lacquer from their list but I have also used gems and punched flowers too so feel that covers everything.
Thanks for looking x
