Riley and Company: 3-1-3 Recipe Challenge!

Wow ~
 only a few more days and it will be Thanksgiving ♥
Our kids are already salivating and waiting on the scrumptious dinner,
telling me daily, almost hourly,
that they can't wait for the big Thanksgiving meal.
As a mom, that makes my heart happy and I know we are so blessed ~
definitely rich in love and faith above all things.
My heart aches for those that won't have a table to sit at,
or missing loved ones that are seated at the table of Our Father.
Indeed we have much to be grateful for.

 Today's card is for the new Riley and Company challenge:
a Recipe challenge with 3-1-3 ....
3 designer papers, 1 ribbon and 3 of one kind of embellishment.
That's my kind of challenge!
I love layers, using designer paper and embellishments
and naturally chose .......... buttons! ♥

For my card here, I used the Funnybones sentiment
"Coffee Keeps me Busy"
paired with paper I had in a leftover mat stack.
I didn't want to use tons of paper on my card so I used the "3" papers
as smaller squares (and continued it to the inside as well)
The "1" ribbon is a jute type ribbon from A/C and I swirled it under the image
where I added "3" buttons ...
completing the 3-1-3 recipe :)
