Gina K Design June Release Inspiration Hop, Day 3!!

Hey ya'll! Welcome back to our last day of the Gina K Designs' new release hops...hopefully NOT your last day for inspiration though1 :D Cause I definitely will be posting more stuffs for you! Up today we have the newest One Free With Three called Bold And Beautiful And it sure is!! This is what I did for today with it:



I stamped the Iris image onto tissue paper, then wadded it up and glued to a piece of kraft cardstock, creating what is called faux silk (didnt know it HAD a name until just the other day! LOL) LOVE how this looks! Added some twine, but of cheese cloth ribbon, and some pearls and basically thats it! Somebody was asking me where the kraft cardstock was this time around...here!! LOL!
