6 challenges in one :)

Hello everybody,

I'm a college student, and I have been crafting for roughly a year and a half? I just never really thought to go do challenges. I really enjoy making cards, but honestly it takes me an age to even make one card. :) I really gotta learn to be more efficient

So what brings me here today? It's summer, and I am super bored, so I went hunting for some challenges that I could tackle. My aunt passed away a couple of months ago, and this card is for her:

Here are the SIX challenges that I'm undertaking with this card:

1) The layout is Card Patterns Sketch 116

2) The angel and butterfly are for Challenge 153 Things With Wings at Spoonful of Sugar
3) The embellishments are for Pollycraft Challenge #94 Embellishment Bingo - I used lace (peeking out under her dress if you can't tell), gems, and a tag. This was fun trying to decide which bingo I should do; check it out: 
4) The gems and pearls are for the Crafts and Me Gems and Pearls Challenge 36
5) The "thinking of you" is for Something Sentimental challenge at Stamp Something
6) The whole card is for the Anything Goes challenge at Creative Card Crew

Okay, so I lied. There are additional challenges I'm entering that I neglected to mention before. ^^; Really it's more like 30 in one? I can't change the title of the entry because I've already submitted my entries for the above. It's nice to be able to enter so many challenges on my first try!
