Happy Thursday!!!

Hello everyone....hope all is well on this beautiful fall day!!! The temps here in Central Texas are finally under 90 degrees so cooler days are coming!!! We have three old Oak trees in our front yard and every fall we rake up huge piles of leaves so the Grands can run and jump. The only thing is they will have to wait till November...LOL!! Anyway...I had some play time yesterday and made this card using Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #92 and the Color Throwdown #111 colors of Pacific Point, Melon Mambo, and River Rock.
The Rubbernecker Wildflower image was stamped with River Rock on the vanilla background and again with Mellon Mambo on a scrap piece of vanilla. The Mellon Mambo flowers were cutout and layered over the ones stamped with River Rock. Glitter was added for a little glam and the punched butterflies with the pearls, ribbon with the button and twine, sewing and distressing finish it off.
Recipe:
Stamps: Rubbernecker
Paper: Vanilla, River Rock, Mellon Mambo, Pacific Point, Stampin Up! dp
Ink: Mellon Mambo, River Rock
Accessories: Glitter, Spellbinders Scalloped Border Die, Ribbon, Button, Twine, Sewing Machine, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, Pearls, Nestabilities
This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Flutterby Wednesdays - all winged things
2. Little Red Wagon - glitter
4. Wild Orchid Challenge - ribbons and bows
5. Crafty Pad Challenge Blog- embossing wet or dry (I used dry embossing on the River Rock panel)
Thanks for visiting today......it means a lot to me!!

What a pretty card, love the colors and the flowers with the bit of glam. The distressed edges are perfect for that shabby chic look. I agree on the temps, it almost feels cool since it was over 100 all summer.
