Challenge: Easy as 1, 2, 3

Through the Canadian Crafters' group on Facebook I found a fun new challenge site: Seriously Creative Challenges. This site has monthly challenges and for September we are to use 1 ribbon, 2 embellishments, and 3 patterned papers.

I am a self-declared paper hoarder, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to use some of the beautiful DSP I bought two months ago! I rarely use more than one patterned paper at a time so this definitely was a challenge for me!! My mother wanted me to make a card for a friend of her's who is in the hospital. She loves flowers and purple, so I thought the Pocketful of Posies (which is my absolute favourite paper right now) would be perfect. Thankfully she's recovering quickly :)
