This week on 365 cards, Pam is challenging us with a triple alphabet challenges. each day she pick a letter, and ask for 3 specific things starting with that letter. only sometimes she really needs to stretch to match the letter to whatever came to her head that moment... (and no, Pam, emboss for B, is not "stretch a little", it is definitely stretch a lot... LOL).
On to what is the challenge for today - D, the three D (no, no dimensional, which was the perfect choise to represent D, only Pam had to make it hard on us) - dark brown, diamonds & distressing. Okay, I know diamonds are the girl's best friend, but this dard brown can be very distressin... LOL. Luckily I just got Trish's new comming release on Simple Doodles, and that cheered me up :). Tomorrow on Simple Doodles Trish will bring some new fab digi stamp, and believe me - you don't want to miss it, so make sure to pop over Simple doodles for the new release. and when she gets to 50 followers, Trish will give a lovely freebie, so all you need to do is become a flollwer!
The diamond shape pp was computer generated, the sentiment is a new dige at simple doodles. I took the image from here (btw, great blog! and so many vintage stuff, and free!), and I distressed the edges and inked it with gold ink, so it's even more old looking. then I adhered it on a lace doily, that was also inked with red and brown inks (yes, I kind of in love with these doily, so I use it a lot :)). the butterfly is also from the grafics fairy, and I cut it in two sizes, inked with chocolate color ink, I adhered red pearls and used some gold glitter for the edges. isn't it just adorable?
The paper flower on the right lower corner was made of polka left over pp & another purple pp leftover (I decided to enlarge my flower stuff by using all those scraps leftovers).
the sentiment is one of the new release on simple doodles, and I embossed it and inked with brown ink.
