Yikes!  It's Friday the 13th.  I didn't even realize that until I started typing my post for today.  But anyway, here's my card for today!  I've been on a roll lately combining challenges, it's so fun!  I made this card for-

-- Today's free for all challenge on splitcoast stampers- we were to use inchies.
-- CAS-ual Friday blog- we were to choose 2 opposite colors from the color wheel. I used red & green
-- 365 Cards - Just a touch.  Select an image to add to your card, adding just a touch of color to it.
-- DYSU Challenge Blog - getting our Glitter or Bling on.  There is glitter on my center flower (It was hard to get a better photograph of my glitter, but it's there).
I stamped my three images and punched them out using my square punch.  In keeping with the 365 blog challenge to only color a touch of my image I decided to be a little more creative and I colored the center image and left the other two without any color- I think this looks pretty neat!  My flower image panel is placed on my card using dimensionals.

I used the accents edgelit die for my scalloped poppy parade border.  To make my ribbon treatment I placed a piece of sticky tape across my card and then I scrunched it by folding the ribbon back and forth until I got the ruffled look I wanted.  I used my piercing tool to help me do this. 

Then I added my button with a piece of twine tied in a bow.  I only have white SU twine so I used my poppy parade marker to color it red- if you do this make sure your twine is dry before you work with it.

I sort of felt that the bottom of my card was a bit too plain and so I decided to add just a dry embossed rows using my simply scoring tool.

Well, that's all for today!  Have a great weekend and I hope your Friday the 13 is a good one!
