Waterlily skiing and some challenges

Hi all and a happy weekend!!
I made today's card with a few challenges in mind.
The image is Waterlily skiing from Penny Black. I had received a few images from a image swap I was in, and after that I just had to have the stamp, and I was lucky enough to find it on ebay.
It was colored with copics and prisma markers. I actually colored it a few months ago when I was practicing.
The designer paper is from Basic Grey, eva collection. I added a little bit of stickles glitter to it for some sparkle. The other papers are stampin up, melon mambo, kiwi kiss and white. Since the paper was already so busy, I tried to use less embellishments, but they are my favorites: pearls, narrow grosgrain ribbon and paper flowers.
And these are the challenges I made it for:

Friday Sketchers sketch ( a little bit reversed)
Stamp something (something with your favorite embellishment)
Cute Card Thursday (color challenge pink and green)
