September 2014 Diva Dare Day 6

Jen here with Day 6 of the September Diva Dare! It's Terrific Trios this time so we have to use 3 of something on our card.

Here's my card:


I used Better Together and Framed Lilies for my card.  The background was made by stamping the background from Better Together on white cardstock and then heat embossing it with white embossing powder. I then sponged over that with Pickled Raspberry, Broken China and Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I sponged everything on I got my fingers wet and flicked water on the paper to make the water spots. I embossed the strip of vellum with Seeing Spots Cuttlebug embossing folder and then added a bit of ribbon from the Polka Dot Basics Ribbon Collection. I finished the ribbon off with a bit of baker's twine and added three rhinestones to the heart.

My trio of items could be a number of things, lol. I have three rhinestones as well as three types of polka dots.

Now its your turn to create! Enjoy!
