triple TRIPLE threat sketch card! (woohoo!)

what the heck am i talking about? well, this week's challenge at shopping our stash is a really, REALLLLLY fun one:

Challenge 58: Triple Threat
pick any three of these: 
ribbon, flowers, lace, pearls, glimmer mists, punched elements or die cut elements, rhinestones, doilies (stamped will work too), dry embossing or scoring 
use three of one type of embellishment

so there's NO excuse to not play, right? because basically you can choose the things you like best and create your own challenge!!! here's my card:

(patterned paper: pink paislee; glossy white cardstock: ranger; flower: prima (originally white but sprayed with glimmer mist; please note that IRL it does NOT clash with the pink doilies in the paper!  arrgh!); embossed chipboard butterfly: studio 18; ribbon: buy the yard; lace: from my friend linda brun--ta v much!!!; pearls: want2scrap; diecut heart: girls' paperie; glittery tag: anahata katkin, papaya--from the lovely miss stephanie; ink: colorbox; adhesives: tombow monorunner, 3m foam tape, gluedots, sewing machine)

ever the over-achiever... (some might say "show off"!) ...i did a TRIPLE triple threat! i've got:

1. flower
2. pearls
3. lace
4. ribbon
5. die cut (heart)
6. dry embossing (on the chipboard butterfly)
7. mist (on the flower)
8. doilies (on the paper)
9. there's a total of THREE butterflies! (ok, technically there are only 2.5 butterflies because the chipboard one DID NOT want to slide easily under the tag and thus forced me to chop one of his wings off. this sort of ruthlessness may be why my husband treats me so well... lol!) :)

for the placement of my items, i used the current unscripted sketch, #165:

  4. Wow this card turned out so pretty. I'm trying to catch back up on cards. Oh crap. I just realized I didn't send out the stamps. I'll be doing that tomorrow. Logan got strep this week. Going to go put together the package.
