Make it a trio...

'Let's make it a trio' is the current challenge over at the Frilly and Funkie Blog.

I used 3 brads, 3 pearls, 3 elements, and 3 photo images in the film strip. I felt the black ink on the focal point image from Tim Holtz was a little overpowering so I tried using my new Pumice Stone Distress Ink instead...I like the way it picked up the green in the background paper. The image is a little more faded looking in the pic than it is in real life. I made a two slits in the background paper and threaded the ribbon through before attaching to the card base and then added the pearls to the one side.

Thanks for stopping by!
