Eclectic Ellapu Challenge #3

Hello Fellow Crafters!
As I mentioned yesterday, we are on our 3rd challenge over at the Eclectic blog.  Although it's the Pink Teams turn again I have card to post for inspiration.  Hope you will all play along.  We're having a good 'ole time, won't you join us?

OK, here's my 1,2,3 Recipe card.
Just in case it's not obvious, I have one image (from My Favorite Things), 2 papers (the ruffle at the bottom is one and the light floral behind the image is 2), and 3 embellishments.  Now, the embellishments, I guess, can be interpreted in any number of ways. I actually have 4 different embellishments - bling, flower, string, and lace.  The three embellishments are supposed to be the same so, I am counting either the three strands of string , my three layers on the flower, or the three little splashes of water that I added Diamond Glaze to as my "3" in the recipe.  So, take your pick.  I'm sure I over did the line of bling on the right but that empty space was just calling for something and three just wasn't enough!  Of course I added ink all around 'cuz I just can't resist getting my hands dirty.  I also added a little of the Diamond Glaze to the soap bubbles to help them sparkle a bit.  For the Tic Tac Toe Challenge I chose the vertical row of Gems-Sentiment-Ribbon for my card.  My ribbon is really string or it could be the folded paper ribbon on the bottom.  Well, that's it.  I hope you enjoyed my card today.  Stay tuned as I plan on posting a Halloween card tomorrow.  See you then!
