Loads of challenges in 1 !! :-)

This card qualifies for several challenges :-) I would love to be able to do one card per challenge but with all the fabulous challenges out there it would be impossible !! So,,,, I followed the sketch on the Sketch Saturday challenge, I also followed the theme on the Penny Black Saturday Challene which is a recipe of 3 brads, 2 ribbons and 1 flower,The Stamp Something Challenge is to use your favourite things for inspiration, well having 7 cats sort of qualifies me to use this stamp ! The Cute Card Thursday Challenge is wine and dine, well champagne is wine !! The ABC Challenge is distressing, well that speaks for itself, and the Spoonfull odf Sugar challenge is torn edges :-) How many is that ?? err I think it's 6 !!! Yeah !! I've never done that before :-)
The stamp is Penny Black 'Lovely Bubbly' The DP is from my shelf ?? I coloured the image with my new copic pens which arrived today:-) I am fairly pleased with the colouring but need to practice a bit with them and also think I need more skin tones especially. I bought the 72 A set from Cult Pens. I also received a lovely parcel of SU stuff, it was like my birthday today, postie was laden with parcels :-) I coloured the flowers (SU) with antique linen ink, and also used this to distress all the torn and scuffed edges. The brads and text thing were from the SU hodgepodge hardware set. What else ,,,, oh yes I also used a bit of coredinations black/grey which I distressed with sandpaper :-) Think thats it :-)
I would appreciate any advice re copics !
Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one before you hop away :-)
