The SugarBowl challenge - ANYTHING GOES

Hello peeps... and a good morning to ya!
It would seem its time for another "Sugarbowl" challenge... I just don't know where the time goes...!!!
Well, with relief my card was done in plenty of time because I had a Eureka moment when making a card for the lovely Christine .. to use a Sugar Nellie stamp... cheeky I know... but a bit canny too! 
So here she is....

 Ok, this is "Let them eat cake" , and she has been stamped very lightly and coloured with my Spectrums....
The papers are Nitwits, "Always & Forever", they matted and layered on cream cs then Kraft. I added some stitching and some lace, seam binding in pink, and a ribbon rose , finished with a pearl. The oval is my new  Joy! die, which has been distressed... and I added stickles.... oh, and dotted on some pearls. the post mark stamp is from the Portabello rd set, I think.I fussy cut Delia out and 3d'd her onto the card... the tag is LOTV.

Here is a nice glittery close up.... glitter on fairy wings... compulsory, right???
 So, there you have it... all you need is a SUGAR NELLIE stamp to enter and there is 4 stamps up for grabs as the prize, which goes up if the number of entries gets higher....
So, in my semi-confused state , all I need to do is enter this in...
1.Craft room challenge - something new (die)
2.Loves rubber stamps- round or square cards
3.Papertake Weekly -Flower power
4.Sweet Stamps - anything goes
5.ABC challenge - lots of layers
