Shopping Our Stash #162 - Triple Threat

Happy Tuesday! This week's SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge is "Triple Threat."

We'd like you to use at least three of these:  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.

Visit the SOS BLOG for all the details on the challenge and while you are there show my crafty teamies some lovin'!!

I call my tag for this challenge "THANKS JESSI!" as a LOT of the stuff on my card was a gift from Jessi at one time or another...sharin' the crafty lovin'!!

Here's what I came up with for the challenge using ribbon, flowers, punched elements and rhinestones:

The tag was a comedy of errors, I thought I was heat embossing with white embossing powder, nope, it was heat & stick powder...then grabbed the pewter by mistake...I guess it's not TOO bad with the rhinestones and other silver accents...and can you even tell I covered the whole tag with Squeezed Lemonade distress stain??? Didn't think so...

I also wasn't 100% (ok not even 1%) sure what to do with the gauze strip, so I laid it out on my Ranger craft sheet (just got one, best thing EVAH!!!) and stained it with the Peeled Paint distress stain...pretty awesome right?? LOL

TRULY FABULOUS! Of course because you know, it's got my name all over it ;) Genius idea to use distress stain on the gauze! Love the booboo with the powders, because OMG that has happened to me more times than I want to think about!
