Shopping our Stash #162 - Triple Threat!


This week's challenge at Shopping our Stash is a fun one! We've got a list of supplies, and we want you to use AT LEAST three of them (you can use more, you can use them all, but at least three!) Make sure you list them for us :) 

Here's the list:
Ribbon, flowers, lace, pearls, sprays/mists,  punched elements or die cut elements, rhinestones, doilies (stamped will work too), dry embossing or scoring OR use three of one type of embellishment.

I ended up using four - flowers, pearls, die cuts, and a doily - to create a 50th anniversary card:



Supplies: PSX sentiment stamp; Versamark & Pirate Gold EP; AC gold textured cardstock; handmade gold paper; vellum; classic small & lacy circle Nesties; Prima flowers; brads from stash; Wilton doily; pearls from Dollarama


This was a hard card to photograph with all the metallic elements - and I notice now that these photos were BEFORE I fixed the pearl strip trying to make a run for it behind the flowers. HUMIDITY HOW I LOATHE THEE. 

So, are you ready to take on the triple threat? Check out the design team creations & join us 


xoxo,
Jessi
