SOS58 - Cherries anyone?

Happy Tuesday, and welcome to the next Shopping Our Stash challenge: Triple Threat.  We ask you to use at least three items from the following list on your card: ribbon, flowers, lace, pearls, glimmer mists, punched elements or die cut elements, rhinestones, doilies (stamped will work, too), dry embossing or scoring -OR- use three of one type of embellishment. 

 I was experimenting with bleach on dark CS this week and this is one of the results.
After I bleached the image I kind of liked how it looked so I didn't want to color it all in - so I just added a bit of red on the cherries.  Papers are really oldie, but goodie - from the first SU paper pack I ever purchased :)


From our challenge menu I used die cuts, ribbon, flowers and rhinestones.

Challenges:
Flourishes - Timeless Tuesday - summer theme (what's better in summer than fresh fruit straight from the tree?)
Wags 'n Whiskers - Kraft
Totally Stampalicious - ribbons & bow

What could be more summery then cherries! a Good stamp choice :) I have never tried the beach technique and after seeing your card, I may need to give it a try! Your card is unique and so pretty! :)

Thank you for joining us in Flourishes Timeless Tuesday!!
