Caviar Trio....

Saturday Salutations....
Okay - I know the title for this post is a bit odd....but it goes with the challenge which comes from CCEE and the picture of caviar shown at the bottom of this post. I was totally unsure of what I would do with this challenge but caught onto the idea from some of the blogs I read.

So...I took the colours from the three different jars of caviar, and the number 3 worked well with the sketch from Our Creative Corner which had the three bands coming into the middle of the card. I omitted the ribbon across the middle only because I didn't want to cut my "Totally Cool" girl off at the knees.

I used the "Things I Love" stamp set which includes "new shoes" in banana, "chocolate" in Dusty Durango and the black strip has "shopping".
I didn't want to add a different colour into the mix (beyond
the jeans which go with the little package label in the picture) so the present that she is holding was done in irredescent ice which I haven't used in so so long and is glittery in real life.

I'm posting this late Friday night....so I expect that I will be making another Saturday post during the day. In fact I already have some papers out on my table ready to be worked together. I am now going to settle into watching "Where the Wild Things Are" with my 18 year old daughter. Gotta love it when puberty is somwhat over and done with and you can be friends again!!!
Thanks for stopping by - Joan
