Stamping Vacation DT -Pick 3 Challenge for Month of September

It's September 1st----YIKES.......
Here I am with my first DT card for the Stamping Vacation PICK 3 Challenge .


But before I get to that let me tell you a bit about The Stamping Vacation Challenge Blog where there is a challenge for every day of the month. Each challenge also lasts for one month..............so you have more time to enter the challenges more than once, thereby allowing your name to go into a draw at the end of the month, for a voucher to a specific store.

This month the voucher is $25.00 from FLOURISHES .

Now for my PICK 3 DT card..................


This month, we are challenging you to pick 3 from the list below and turn them into a card. Pls remember to specify your items when you link back to the Stamping Vacation blog.
And pls remember to turn off word verification!

Here's your list- should you chose to accept it! lol

circle tag
anything yellow
brad
frame
eyelet
vellum
image with a building
string
black paper

Can u see what I used?



First of all  I used the image from Prairie Fairy Designs called Villa Road.
This is my first attempt at a sketchy sketch of still life with unclear lines! I was frightened to do it, but got er done anyways. The sentiment is from a different Prairie Fairy Design set called Honey Beary Set of 3.
I colored it all wrong & therefore is my least fav part of the card. I used Stampin Up Hodge Podge Hardware to encase the sentiment, as well as in the corner of the image and in the middle of my string on the side.
I also used the sketch from Stamping Vacation........new sketch will be available tomorrow.
YUP..............
I used string,
black paper and
an image with a building!
(and I snuck a frame in too) 
You guessed it!!!
Those are my pick 3's!!

So get on over to the Stamping Vacation Challenge Blog for a chance at a great prize. It's the only place in town where there are a TON of challenges!!

ALSO- Stamping Vacation will be hosting a blog hop on Sept 25 & 26 called
HOMEMADE WITH A HOP !

Challenges for my card:
Stamping Vacation- sketch therapy
Creative Cottage- celebrations (new home)
Sir Stampalot- distressed
All Sorts- garden or park
Pollycraft- add a little nature
