Is This Card a 10?

My first inspiration for this card was to follow the challenge by Kim at Day 24, Terrific 10 at 365 Cards to use at least 10 designer papers. I think I did, but my challenge to 365 cards is to count and make sure I did! LOL. I kept losing count coz I kept changing my mind! Then I saw the sketch challenge at The Pink Elephant Challenge #59 using the circles to layer the differrent DPs. Then I need a color choice so I went to The Play Date Cafe Challenge #22 to use the following colors:









So that is how this card came together.


That's all for tonight. Can't complain about the snow anymore, so I guess we'll gripe about all the rain, wind and cold! Just heard on the news that Farmington had two different situations where they had to pull people out of flooding creeks. Oh my!

hum...I think I only count 7...sorry you loose! Nah, just kidding, mother dear! This is an absolutely lovely card with all the pp and layout! But gotta say I'm totally digging that fringe under the satin ribbon! Gives it such a great texture! And while I'd love to take credit for this challenge...that's all Pam's doing at 365...I just get to make the sample! Thanks for playing along with us again this week!
