Yippee ... time for another

Hi Everyone!  It's rainy, windy here in N.E. Ohio which means it's a great time for hiding out in the "crafting cave" so today's I'm working on DT work and a few of my favorite challenges!!  

At Joan's today, she has really put us (ME) to the test but I'm glad she did because I would have NEVER made this card had she not!!  What do you think?

 (click on image to enlarge)
 The requirements for today's challenge are:
  • Color - Orange, Green and Blue
  • Embellishment - Printed Ribbon and something hanging
  • 3 different prints - can include ribbon print
  • Distress with ink

This will work out perfectly for my B-I-L's birthday in November and now I'm "ahead of the game" !
The items used on this creation are as follow:
Stamps:  Heartfelt Creations (purchased at Joan's Gardens) Posey Patch Flowers, Anita's sentiment (Joann's)
Papers:  Bo Bunny Life's Collage dp, DCWV Fall Stripes dp, Patriot Blue, Medium Blue, Whisper White
Inks:  Versafine black, Ranger Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint and Spiced Marmalade distress inks (all Ranger inks purchased at Joan's Gardens)
Other:  Tim Holtz distress ink applicator, Nestabilities Fall Leaves die, Fall wired ribbon (RAK), SU photo corner punch, Paper Reflections tag

If you've not played along in Joan's challenges ... you are missing out!!  Please pop on over to Joan's Gardens ... check out all the awesome products in her store and play the challenge!  You won't be sorry!!

Back to the cave I go for more crafting fun!!!  Hugs!  Dar
