A Day of Thanks Card...Heart 2 Heart Challenge

Okay, so this is my first challenge and of course I couldn't get my camera to cooperate (I have GOT to get that fixed!) but I am really happy with this card.  I check in regularily over at the Heart 2 Heart CTMH Challenge Blog and this week's challenge was to use only cardstock (no patterned paper) with a minimum of three colours being used.   I figured I could handle this one so I jumped in!  The colours I used were Juniper, Olive, Cocoa and Kraft (does that count as a colour?).  The stamped images are from the Pair-A-Phrase set with the exception of the background stamp I used on the colonial white paper which is from Noted Backgrounds.  All of the elements got a good dosing of distressing and antiquing.  I used the 1" circle punch for the scallop border and the button is from the wooden buttons set.  Oh and I added a few Opaques for a little polish.
Let me know what you think...is this challenge worthy?

(and of course all supplies are CTMH)  :)
