3 in a Row....challenge 135

Well hello there,
this week it is my turn to choose the theme for our challenge over at and I think I have chosen a nice easy one for us all to enjoy. It is a 3 in a row.

Row one.    Tag shape, button, embossing (either type)

Row two.    Pattern paper, image, pearls

Row three.  Paper piecing, die cut, flowers

I knew this would be easy for some of you and I even expect to see a few cards with all 9 items on.

Here is my card. It was made for an order for a lovely young lady.

As you can see I almost made a card with all 9 but alas I only fitted 7 on there.

This card is a 7x7 white card and I have used a pink from Kaisercraft as the first mat but not before I cut the hexagon out of it to mat the image on to. The patterned paper I have had a while and I think it is Dovecraft, I ran it through a embossing folder and inked the edges with worn lipstick. The image is a Bestie and coloured in using my Promarkers. The lace was a gift and the sentiment is from a set I won over at Verve Stamps (they are wonderful), I added 3 pearls and 3 roses to finish off.

I am also entering this card in to the Bestie challenge over at 

Here is another card I made this was for my Big Sister and her Hubby's wedding anniversary not long ago.

This card uses row two, patterned paper, image and pearls.
This again is a 7x7 card but kraft card. I used again Kaiserkraft plain paper and also patterned paper from the same set. The image is a stencil I just bought which I inked up using 5 different Tim Holtz inks pulling in the colours from the papers. 6 pearls add a little touch before finishing off with 4 roses and some diecut leaves.

Now its time for you to join in and show us your master pieces. Please remember it must be 3 in a row horizontal, vertical or diagonal. Have fun
