Some favourite papers

This card is for the Truly Scrumptious challenge 16 sketch, although I'm afraid I didn't use three stamps (in fact, I didn't use any), so I might be revisiting this sketch to do this additional part of the challenge.

Favourite papers and colours are the theme of this week's Stamp Something, so I'm linking for that.

The card is also good for:

The Color Dare
34: certainly blush chocolate

Cupcake 58: distressing techniques - I distressed the embossed Happy Birthday sentiment with an ink pad.

Created by hand: texture - the embossing, the flowers etc.

BG 4: embossing - the embossed HB sentiment is a cuttlebug folder. The BG papers I used are sugared and porcelain.

Today's challenge on 365 (day 206): Tuesday triplets - Three is the thing on this challenge. I want to see three of everything - anything you want, but if you have one blossom then you need to add 2 more - make sense? The only thing that can be just one is the sentiment. I used 3 patterned papers, 3 flowers, 3 buttons, 3 brads, three spiky circles (using nestabilities).
