Three challenges

Hi Friends,
I hope you are enjoying your weekend. Anyone have any exciting plans? We're having a beautiful crisp fall day, and we're busy doing things around the house. Carlin is preparing to teach tomorrow at church, and I've been picking up, running errands. I hope to get in some crafty time. I have a list of "to-dos," so I hope to mark some of those off the list.
Today's card actually meets the requirements for 3, yes, 3 challenges!! I am so excited because I've not played with many challenges lately (except the "Everything but the Kitchen Sink" challenge.) It meets the Color Throwdown #63 (see swatch below), the Moxie Fab Gradient is Radiant, and the Cardvaarks Ribbon challenge.
I played with my Copics again to color in the flower, and then I stitched the ribbon by hand using some DMC floss after tacking down the ribbon down in an accordian fold using some red line tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I would love to hear your latest plans :)

Lynnette
