It made me think of you card

This has been a card making month for me.   I was in a Christmas in July challenge on my yahoo group so most cards have been Christmas cards.   So this card was fun making as not Christmas and  I'm going to get to  enter into 2 challenges.   First I went with the Inspiration Challenge #191 at Hand Stamped Sentiments.   I went with using the colors of a teal blue that was in the 3 photos of the inspiration.  With my banner and its matting and then center pearl and the coloring on the flowers.
Check out the challenge HERE.

Then the 2nd challenge I'll be entering this card in is the one at Shopping Our Stash.
Challenge #162 is called Triple Threat and from the list of  ribbon, flowers, lace, pearls, sprays/mists, punched elements, die cut elements, rhinestones, doilies, dry embossing or scoring .  You had to use at least three items from the list or use three of one type of embellishment.    I chose 3 items, a doily, a stamped flower and 3 pearls on my banner.   Read more info on the challenge   HERE.
