3-2-1 Challenge - I am at it again!

Here is another challenge card! The challenge was a fun one I found on Crafty Creations Challenges - use 3 designer papers, 2 embellishments and 1 image. This card also works for Truly Scrumptious' Challenge to distress and Diva's By Design's challenge to button up! See as I was working on this I needed a 3rd designer paper so...I distressed my own! Because a*muse studio paper is printed on the front and white inside You can make your own patterns and designs. I embossed the stripes at the bottom of the card and then with a sanding block scuffed away the sky color. I am sending this card to Deb who had surgery on the 8th. Hi Deb! I hope your feeling better!
Products used to make this card are from a*muse studios, unless otherwise noted, and include:
Cherry Heartbreakers Design Paper, Cherry Gingham Design Paper, Sky, Sugar and Cherry Card Stock. Dies are Nesties Rectangle and Scallop Rectangle Lg. The Button is from my stash and the ribbon is Cherry Stitched Grosgrain. I used my scor-pal to get the stripe pattern and my scallops are cut with old Fiskars Scallop Long Scissors
