Embellishment Challenge

How many embellishments can you put onto a card? Here I have a card using Bashful Blue for the card base. Courtyard Print (2 sided) from Scrapbook Walls is used on the background and the brown ovals cut from SU's large oval punch, and the blue oval from the smaller oval punch. The flower is Courtyard Flowers from SW also. The flower is made by cutting a piece of paper 1 1/2 inches by 10 inches scored every 1/4 inch. Then accordian fold and fan so that the 2 ends go together. This is tricky but you have to hold it flat on your surface. Glue those two ends together. It will keep popping up until you flatten it on your card! I used double-sided tacky tape to really hold it down. I added a 3/4 inch circle that I punched out and covered it with a clear page pebble and a large brad. The "for you" is from SU "fun filled" and the happy birthday is from Memories in the Making rubber roll stamp. The photo turn is from JoAnn's and the brad is SU's bashful blue. The ribbon is ???(just from my stash!) The eyelets in the upper corners are really brads . So in this challenge I have used;
ribbon
eyelet brads
brads
photo turn
page pebble
Now it is your turn. Feel free to pass this around to all the bloggers you know and send me a photo or link to your card. At the end of the week I will post all my entries and have you the viewers pick the winner.

Great challenge Laura! I love embellishments. I'll work on something this week! I'll see how many I can add to my card.

Your card looks great! Your use of embellishments work really well with your design!

Hi Laura!
I've been to your sight before! now that I have your name I will put you on my blogs I visit list. I hate it when I browse and then can't remember the name of the blog. I like your blog and your cards are great! I am going to try your challenge and will get back with you. The ribbon appears to be tricky but fun!
