Flight of Challenge (Pile It On! + 2)

First of all I want to invite all the Michael Jackson fans to visit my previous post of the day that is a tribute card to Michael. You can see it HERE. It is sad that I waited until the present circumstances before I used the stamp. Since most of you direct linked here I thought I would point it out so you don't miss it.

Now to today's challenge card. I have "Piled It On!" with three challenges represented. Let's count.

ONE: Pile It On #4 - Button It Up! - Use at least four buttons.
TWO: Stamp Something - Embellished Something - Use at least three embellishments. I used four buttons so that is four embellishments.
THREE: 365 Cards - Day 121 - Four Seasons - Use all four seasons on your card.

Stencil : Dreamweaver (Four Seasons) BTW, I have trouble with this stencil as the holes are so small. I love the image but I have trouble using it with a stylus and dry embossing with the Wizard isn't too satisfactory either. I have tried chalk stenciling and stenciling with chalk pigment inks and I'm never happy with the results. I used Ultra Fine Point Sharpie Markers on this and the leaf shape isn't very defined. Anybody else have this stencil and had great success?
Buttons: Favorite Findings - Blumenthal Lansing Company
Inks: Ranger Distress Inks - Old Paper and Pine Needles
Card: Hot Off The Press
