I completed this card for a challenge on my dear friend Christine' Blog.This is the first challenge on her blog and i could not stay away... Check out Christine's blog @

I used AC cardstock in white for my base, the striped paper is from the My Minds Eye Bella Bella paper stack the embossing folder used is from the tim holtz line, and the stamp used on the tag is prima marketing.

The challenge is to create a card using some kind of embellishment you purchased over a month ago but have yet to use. We all have purchased something we "had to have" then watched it for a week then two, meaning to use it but just somehow can't.

Your creation must be a card that measures 6X6 and please describe what this "must have" item was and why you "NEEDED" to have it. I will be giving away a small gift as a token of my appreciation for you all joining me on my 1st Serenity blog Challenge.

My must have are actually 2 things. The orange flowers are Prima's Cameo Roses Poppyfield and have been sitting on my desk for over 2 months. The second item you really cant see that good but are Ranger Perfect pearls in the Blue Patina color. After watching a tutorial that Christine sent me i realized that i have had these perfect pearls in a drawer for about 4 years. I never knew what to do with them but i knew i just had to have them. So as the tutorial said i put about 3 pinches of the pearls powder into one of my little ranger spritz bottles and made my own spritz.

here is the tutorial
