Cardvaarks Paperplay Stamp Something Challenge

There is an absolutely gorgeous photo for inspiration over at Cardvaarks this week and I am only just going to make it in time.  I am a little confused as to whether or not Cardvaarks allows one to enter multiple challenges.  If anyone knows the answer - do tell!  In the hope that it is OK, I also want to enter this card into Stamp Something which wants green and cream and also Paperplay's "seeing double" challenge.
I started this card on Saturday and didn't really like it much but it has grown on me now and I know just the recipient for it (even though she hasn't done anything yet to be thanked for). 
The paper is a mix of Me & My Big Ideas and something Julie (just about) let me have on Saturday.  Main images of the lamp and bird cages are Papermania Chatsworth.  I used some corner stamps for the "table" and "tablecloth" decoration and I made the sentiment myself in about two hours!!!

This is so elegant...and so well done as usual Leslie. I love how you use your punches for the table cloth. You always think out of the box to come up with such unique and clever ideas! Thank-you for sharing!!!!!

Hi Lesley
love your card's, I took a peek at your craft room, you lucky girl. My husband made me a lovely craft room, from one of the bedrooms,(at the time I thought I would never fill all the cupboards, drawers etc) lol, but I have now run out of space to put all of my stash. As we have 6 grandchildren that stay with us regularly, we are going to buy a cabin for the garden, and I am going to have my craft room in there. Summer it will be great, but I'm not so sure about the winter lol.
