Shopping Our Stash #162: Triple Threat

Hello peeps and good morning! It's time for another challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH! This week, we want you to use at least three of the following: ribbon, flowers, lace, pearls, sprays/mists, punched elements or die cut elements, rhinestones, doilies (stamped will work also), dry embossing or scoring OR use three of one type of embellishment. We've given you a boat load of options to work with to get your crafty mojo going! LOL! Here's the card I made:

 and the inside:

Here's my list of elements used: a border punch, oval die cuts, ribbon (first time using it - there was a nice coating of dust on the cellophane wrapping), lace, and pearls. I based the colors I used from the ribbon. (well, duh!) I punched one side of the white strip under the ribbon, and trimmed the other side close, as I was going to sew some cross stitches over it. Then I decided that was a bad idea. Now what to do with this lopsided panel? Hmm, I spotted that lace and thought that would look cool/weird/different. So that's what I did. ☺ Finished the inside and that was it.

Now it's your turn! Make a card or project with at least three of the above items and add it to the linky at Shopping Our Stash! Please do check out what my teammies made to inspire you also! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get the chance to play along!
