A 3 challenge card...

My card today was created for 3 challenges.  I enjoy having the chance to combine several challenges into one of my cards.  This card was certainly a challenge!  My first two attempts with the card base and matting just didn't look right...but the third one was a charm.  I least I think so; I hope you like it!  I made this card for a sweet friend of mine.  I hope she doesn't check my blog before I have the chance to give her the card!

This card will be submitted to these challenges:
Just Us Girls (JUGS) sketch challenge #40, sponsored by Justrite Stampers
Crazy 4 Challenges, who challenged us to use 2 or more ribbons
Inspirations Color Challenge #30, the challenge is to use kraft, rich razzleberry, old olive & whisper white
The second photo shows a little of the inside, where I've added a border of punched DSP to coordinate with the front of the card.
Here's my recipe ~
Card stock: rich razzleberry, old olive, kraft, whisper white (SU)
DSP: cottage wall (SU)
Stamps: autumn leaves (Gina K designs), priceless (SU)
Ribbons: old olive satin (SU), lt purple flourishes (American Crafts)
Punch by MS
Spellbinders square dies
Flat back pearls (Recollections)
