SweetStamps #114

Happy Tuesday!!
I hope that you are having gorgeous and fabulous weather where you are.
 So it is time for another challenge wee over at SweetStamps.
This weeks theme is:
Use 3 of Any Item

Here is my card sample.
I LOVE .... LOVE...this card. 
The colors are bold and match the paper so well.
I used Pixie Silhoette, which I simply adore!!! 
I stamped the image and embossed it with detail fine embossing powder. 
Turning to my distess inks, I grabbed Peeled Paint, Victorian Velvet and Ripe Persimmon and colored the image, using the foam applicator. I trimmed the photo and matted it onto kraft cardstock. 
Pulled out my paper pads and saw that BoBunny Garden Girl, matched almost perfectly with my colored image.   Do you know how excited I was!!!  LOL...I was one happy crafter.  I just love it when things just fall into place.  I trimmed three different pieces of patterned paper, edged them with Walnut Ink distress and positioned them on kraft cardstock.  Finished it off by sewing all three pieces and adding flourishes that I cut three times, using MB Fresh Foliage.

So a little recap on all the items that I used 3 times:
3 differnt colors of distress inks
3 patterned paper, from the same paper pack
3 cut of the same flourish die
