Back with a bang - 8 challenges!!!!

Well, there were so many great challenges out there and my card just happens to fit them. I nearly made it to 9 but that was a challenge too far.
As usual I started with the sketch, which is from Delightful Sketches which is shown below.

The circles down the side made me think of the challenge at Pile it On which is "circles, dots, spots or anything round".
Then of course you have to enter as many challenges as you can (Pile it On), so in no particular order I am also entering the challenges at :-
Charisma Cardz - Swirls and curls,
Creative Card Crew - Pink, Black and White,
La-La Land Crafts Blog - Bling,
Papertake Weekly - Angels and Fairies,
Penny's Challenges - Pearls and
Pollycraft Monday - Furry Friends (Animals).

The image is one from Joanna Sheen in the Messy Rabbit series. Furry friend and Angel combined, coloured with watercolour pencils.
I used three papers from Funky Hand called It's Funky Too, which had circles and swirls on - the border particularly. The flowers were in my stash and have pearls in the middle and were then mounted on black glitter card, which is also bordering the image paper - the Bling! The sentiment was from one of my favourite Cds of the moment from Polka Doodles - Candy Doodles. I love this colour combination and I hope you like it too.

Hi Ali,
Wow - 8 challenges - you sure know how to come back with, as you say - a BANG!! It's funny isn't it how some weeks one card can fit so many challenges and then other weeks you have to make 8 cards for 8 challenges! Hey ho I guess that's what makes it addictive!
Love the colours you have used on this card, hope to do the sketch myself this weekend.
