This is not my card for today's Limited Supplies Challenge and it is not my card for Sharon's (notimetostamp) "Tall and Thin" Challenge either.
I thought it would be, but I broke all those rules as the card went along. LOL!
I started out with the LSC150 and chose 2 colors from the same family: Rich Regals - So Saffron and Elegant Eggplant. I had these flowers from another day and wanted to use them. I chose my DP. So far, so good. Cut my cardstock to be a tall and thin card for Sharon's challenge. Punched the corners. I had embellishments in the same color family - just like the LSC said. Decided I wanted a sentiment at the bottom -- had to use two punches for that. Uh oh. The sentiment is stamped on WC paper and smudged a bit with my aqua brush. Wanted glitter on the flowers. Uh oh. Added brads on the corners and then more brads by the sentiment. Hmmm...... Needed leaves -- another color (we were only supposed to use 2 in the LSC) and used the 5 petal flower punch to make them. Too many punches! And then I needed ribbon and another ribbon...... and more glitter on the leaves. Not simple for me. Or for Sharon's challenge. Too many punches and colors and embellishments for the LSC......
So this is "The Challenge Card That Wasn't!"
Thanks for coming to look and for reading too!
