Three papers and Three adhesive pearls
Tip: Flower Soft is great for adding 'fur' to your fluffy critters.  I added some to the tail of the bunny for some extra dimension.

3 Roses
Tip: Old sheet music, no longer being used,
makes a great background for vintage looking cards.

3 Flowers
Tip: Make flowers with one of your background papers for a perfectly co-ordinated look.

3 Roses
Tip: I made the matting layer for my large die shapes here by cutting the die shape out of Kraft card then drawing round the inside of the die onto DP and cutting out by hand - it gives a perfect narrow border!

3 Scrabble Tiles and 3 Flowers
Tip: Save wood or metal playing game pieces to use on your crafty projects. They make unique embellishments!

3 Butterflies
Tip: Keep all your scraps of coloured card in separate drawers, it makes it so easy to find small snippets of card to punch out elements for cards, as I have done here with the butterflies.

3 Stars
Tip: Tie a knot instead of a bow to keep the C&S feel

3 Papers
   Tip: Give dimension to your fussy cut images by rolling
a ball tool over the back. You can rest them on a cushioned pad to do this, but I can never find mine, so use my thigh instead!

3 Flowers
Tip: Little word sticker sentiment can be the perfect way to finish a simple little ATC.  In this case I used many that I had from leftover projects and it was the perfect finishing touch.

Can't wait to see what your 3's will be!

Card Tip:

Fussy cutting the image and placing it over the top of a printed version enables you to not have to cut out the little details but adds depth to your focal image.

Congratulations Cathie! You win a Guest Designer spot with us.

Samantha will be here shortly with our next challenge and I hope you'll join in the fun.
