Live, Laugh, Love Card

This card would work well for and Anniversary, Wedding, Birthday, or even just an everyday hello.  I so often find myself needing one type of card, only to find I have everything but what I need!  So lately I have tried to make more of the basics (Birthday, etc) along with more versatile cards, using no sentiment or a good all-around theme that would work for multiple occasions, so that I don't find myself in a bind *quite* so often! haha.....

Here are the challenges:
1. Charisma Cards #22 {Flowers}
2. Lil' Red Wagon #31 {Altered Embellishment}
(I used chandellier earring drops from my jewelry-making supply to make a "metal charm" for the super-sparkly flower near the top!)
3. Fun 2 Stamp {Metal Accesories}
4. The Crazy Challenge #17 {Black, White and Pink}
5. Daring Cardmakers {Anniversary Waltz}
6. SmART Words Monthly Challenge {Ribbon}
(I used the patterned paper to make faux ribbons on the side, since the cardstock would hold up better)

And, last but not least:
7. Paper Play Thursday Challenge {Flowers and Sparkle Galore} - and DT Application
And here is the card:
