Simply Limited

This is my card for todays Limited Sketch Challenge LSC205 over on SCS. We had to make a Clean and Simple (CAS) card using very little supplies. Well, this was VERY hard for me. I am just getting the hang of putting more layers and embellishments on my cards and now they ask me to take it all away!!! Phewy! Well I did the best I could and on SU Whisper White Cardstock I stamped the flower from SU's Live Life Like you Mean It set. I inked it up with Garden Green and then wiped off the one petal and with a pink marker colored that one petal, huffed, and stamped. Then I stamped my sentiment which is from Full of Life, in Brilliance Orchid ink. And I am done!! So simple and I actually like the results. It took me all of ten minutes to make but I thought about it for some time. What do you think? You should give it a try too. Really fun.

My next card tonight was for a yahoo group I belong too. We had to use an image that someone sent us, make a card with it and send it to someone in the group. This image I received is from Hanna Stamps I believe and it is a HUGE image. I am a creature of habit and only make a few different sized cards so I had to make this work for me. I colored her with my copics and used ribbon from my stock and the sentiment was made with my new slice machine. I am having so much fun with this little thing.

So thanks so much for stopping by. Hopefully by tomorrow I will have my new siggy on the blog and my GORGEOUS new watermark that I purchased from Jami. I will get all her info together for the blog tomorrow in case you want to contact her.

Have a great night.
