Close-Knit Friends - 4 challenges

This card works for four of the current challenges.  Operation Write Home's Midweek Throwdown is to make friendship cards.  At 365 Cards, the challenge for Day 235 is the sketch I used.  This month's Oozak challenge is to use die-cuts, and at StampTV the Free-for-all Friday challenge is to "show me some bling."  

The stamp set is a duo by Gina K Designs, and the pattern paper is by Stampin' Up!  The border die cut flourish-y hearts is part of a Spellbinders Borderability die.  There are five hearts on the die, but only three were needed to fit the sketch.  The ribbon is some iridescent blue sheer stuff I fell in love with about 8 years ago, and have never used much.  I tend to think it's "too pretty" to use!  This shiny/sparkly hearts are die cuts in an iridescent shiny silver paper.  I love the way the light brings out all those different colors. Some final bling is the heart-shaped diamond-like gems added to the border.
