A Card for four Challenges

Well its been another busy day what with a dental appointment this morning, I went thinking I was in for a checkup and came out with a filling, guess what it came to £57.75 for that, anyway here is yet one more Challenge Card to cover four Challenges, and they are Wild Orchids, "Anything Goes", Lovely hAngler's "Stitches", Papertake Weekly's "Sketch"and lastly Simon Says "Coffee and Cream" and Ive used this brand new image from hAnglar and strAnglars set called "Attitude" dont you just love this little madam, anyway Ive stamped the image onto white card and coloured it with my copic pens before using the mega curved Nestabilie Die to cut it out then used the same die to draw around and create a faux mount for it out of brown card. The sentiment is one of the C&C rubber stamps and felt it was quite appropriate for this image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and the first mount is brown card with one of two papers from the Basic Grey "Scarlet Letter" Digi Downloads, the first being a coffee background with misty looking flowers all over it, the second paper is a plain coffee paper, both of these piece have been sewn on my sewing machine, though I must admit I have some more practice to do as the tension is a bit out still, its my craft sewing machine not my best one so Ive not had time to really sort it out, so do excuse the naff look of it.
Ive then used the sketch from Papertake Weekly to build up my card with the mounts and down the card Ive used some cream lace and cream satin ribbon, then positioned my mounted image on the right hand side and the sentiment underneath.
To finish of Ive used three cream roses and two coffee ones to create the flower spray in the top left hand corner, I bought these from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the leaves are punched out fern leaves which were then attached to the card with some silicone glue.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
