5 challenges combined!

This is definitely my record. Typically I am a mono-challenge kind of girl and when I am feeling bold, I will attempt a duo of challenges.  Today I woke up feeling fruity and successfully combined 5 challenges and such a bright and cheery birthday card is the result!  Hooray for WAY too much coffee this morning!  



I am entering this card into the following five, yep, FIVE challenges:

Clean & Simple Stamping #145  - sketch challenge
Ribbon Carousel Challenge #7 - incorporate music
Crazy 4 Challenges #92 -  add twine, floss, or string

Update:
This card was chosen as Top Spool at the Ribbon Carousel!


Stamps:  sentiment from PTI Birthday Basics, PTI Background Basics:  Sheet Music  Ink:  Momento Tuxedo Black  CS:  PTI kraft, white, black, rasberry fizz, orange zest, and hawaiian shores  Tools:  MFT Die-Namics Pretty Posies Accessories:  PTI twine , orange zest button, and hawaiian shores twill ribbon
