The power of 3 was this weeks Pink Papery Challenge. We were to use 3 of anything on our card as long as it was 3 of something. I used 3 bling embellishments on my card along with one of the "NEWEST Doodle Girls digital images that will be available to purchase in the next few days in the Pink Papery store. Isn't she just too cute??? She can hold anything in her hands! The sentiment I used was from the Angel Co. set. I also used a sketch from My Sketch challenge to inspire me posted here http://mysketchworld.blogspot.com/2009/01/jan-24th-card-sketch.html
Be sure to visit all of the Pink Papery's DT girls blogs (linked on my sidebar). They also have some great cards to share for today's power of 3 challenge.

So for the open house we made 1 card and a candy bar holder.
One night as I was surfing blog land I came across Christyne blog. She had posted the cutest candy bar pouches that I just HAD to teach the ladies at my open house how to do. So I emailed Christyne getting permission to do so and of course the directions...she was SO sweet to email me back with instructions and say YES that she was honored that I wanted to teach this at my open house. You have to go drop by her blog and check out her ADORABLE candy bar pouches http://stampinwithsugar.blogspot.com/2008/02/pixie-pouch-valentines.html
here are the ones that we made in the class...
We used spellbinder dies from the hearts and the stamp set that we used was from the Angel Co. called Sweet Skunks and the paper Mimi. We colored the flowers with prisma pencils and 3d'ed some of the roses to give them a little lift!
I just ordered the flamingo stamp set called Tickled Pink from the Angel Co. and I just new I had to use this at the open house...it's just too cute! The words are so girly that come with this set..I just love'em. The paper was also from the Mimi collection.Here are two other cards I made using the same set and the same paper collection just to show you a few more images from the set.
So now on to some blog candy...I have been wanting to do this for a while now. So if you comment here and let me know you want to be entered in the drawing along with some love on my creations...I will enter you in a drawing to win...
1. All the supplies to make the 2 projects we made at my open house along with some images of both Sweet Skunks & Tickled Pink and another little surprise!
2. I will pick a name on Sunday and announce the winner on Monday, Feb. 2nd. So that gives you a whole week to give everyone a chance to leave a comment here on this post :)
3. If you would like to make a post on your blog (if you have one) letting your friends know about my blog candy feel free to do so. The more the merrier!

Anyways...I'm here posting my challenge a little late in the day. I just had no energy to do it earlier. Our challenge for Pink Papery was to use metallic on our cards today. My scalloped circle, the glitter and the ribbon is metallic as well as the stars on the background. The digital stamp is by Whimsy Studios called Her first Dance you can purchase it here at the Pink Papery store http://host.pappapak16.com/~pinkpape/category_19/Whimsy-Studios.htm
After I was done with the challenge card yesterday I decided to make another. On this card I was inspired by the sketch that Jessica's daughter drew up here http://thewhimsicalbutterfly.blogspot.com/2009/01/fabulous-twinkling-tuesday-isnt-she.html . Jessica is one of the DT members for Pink Papery Studio's. Thanks Jessica for the sketch challenge.
This was also a digital image that I used for this card. It's a by Whimsy Studios and is called devil's food cake stamp.
