A triple challenge entry

This is a triple challenge entry! For
Color Throwdown #25 to use Pear Pizzazz, Kraft and Blushing Bride colors
Stacy's Bling on 2011 Challenge #4 at Sketches4all to use at least 3 types of bling

It was going to be a cover for a notebook, but I cut the cardstock to small and it became a cover for my planner instead:
(Okay, so this isn't Blushing Bride, but I didn't have it. But I think this pink looks nice too!)

Here is my planner before:
Just plain green.
I covered it with Kraft cardstock (punched so it fit over the spiral) and then embellished away

My homemade flower:




Ingredients list:
Kraft and Early Espresso cardstock from SU!
Other paper is random from my scraps
Linen thread is SU!
Green ribbon is Offray
Green bracket cut from Accent Essentials cartridge
Newsprint patterned paper from SU!
Olive vine glimmer mist
Crushed Olive Distress stickles
Corduroy button is retired SU!
Library clip is retired SU!
Rhinestones are Imaginisce from the I-Rock Hot Rocks compact
Script stamp is from SU!'s French Foliage
Ink is river Rock, Early Espresso, Basic Black and Old Olive
Punches from SU!: 1 3/4" scallop circle, Spiral Border, Decorative Label, Boho Blossoms

Now let's just see how long this lasts before something falls off of it!
