Another SOS Challenge

Yep, it's time again for another challenge from Shopping Our Stash!  Remember to dig into your "stash" and then enter our challenge.  The DT has some lovelies for you to feast your eyes on today too so be sure and stop by our blog!

The Theme!!!  Ah, we have a good one this time - so no excuse not to enter!  Triple Threat or Triple Treat (however you may want to look at it) - use any three of the following: Ribbon, flowers, lace, pearls, glimmer mist, punched element or die cut treatments, rhinestones, doilies, dry or heat emboss, or scoring - OR, use three of one type of embellishment!  Be sure and check out the blog!


I know everyone is groaning out there - but yes, I used more Baja Breeze on my card!  It was sitting on my desk already so why not use it, right!  The stamp set I used is called Strength and Hope and although I may have used the butterfly image before, I've never used the sentiment (words) that comes with it.  I also used some Baja Breeze DP that was in my stash along with those big pearls.  A little dry embossing was done and I stamped the butterfly twice and popped it up a little (and even fluffed it's wings out)!

I'll enter this in the challenge at Dream Valley Challenges (things with wings).

If you're looking for my {Pin}spirational challenge card, it's coming up later this morning so be sure and check back - and think red, white, and blue - and a short humorous story too!

Thanks for stopping by...........and check our the Shopping Our Stash challenge for the week.

Oh, Lynn, using Baja Breeze on every card would work for me as long as they are all this beautiful! Love that butterfly and the embossing folder you chose.
