September 2014 Diva Dare Day 8

Good morning! It's Janelle with Day 8 of our Diva Dare for Terrific Trios!
We are challenging you to add 3 of something to your card or project. 


Today's card was started in a very different direction and then I met with some old strathmore paper in my pile and everything went from busy to simple. My card has a set of three flowers from the Happy Place stamp set, but you'll notice the set only has two flowers, so I stamped twice and cut one of them out with the coordinating Happy Doodles dies and the other by hand. I used acrylic paint to color in the flowers and leaves. 

The sentiment is stamped on watercolor paper made from taking the Faux Marble challenged over on Splitcoststampers in the Mix-Ability forum. I used acrylic paints instead of watercolors,  I added the Pennant Trim Die and randomly spread some acrylic paint across it. The gorgeous Cherry ribbon is from the Truly Madly Deeply Ribbon Collection

Thanks for stopping in today!. Now it's time for you to take the dare...
