3 Challenges - one card

Today's challenge over at 365 Cards (Day 10)  was to be inspired by the latest trends in scrapping and cardmaking.  I don't know if these are the latest trends...they've been around for a while, but they seem to be going strong:  Stitching & Pearl swirls...  I love 'em both!  They add texture and interest to any project.

I'm also entering this for the following:  Wild Orchid Challenges - Anything Goes & Annabelle Stamps - Blue, White & Red.... 'cuz if the card fits, submit it!  LOL


Dollar Store Card Blank; DP:  October Afternoon
Sentiment: Fiskars "Make a Wish Quotes"
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; Pearls: Zva Creative

Thanks for looking!  Hope you're having a great day!

- Carolyn
