Limited Supplies Challenge

This challenge on SCS is one that I've always been a little reluctant to try. I figured it would be too hard to have to use only certain items, etc. Well, I did it, and this week's challenge (LSC134) isn't too hard, either!! It makes us limit our layers to 3-4. You're also supposed to limit embellishments, so hopefully my four brads aren't overboard! ;) This card also falls under the WT132 challenge again, using Basic Gray.

I decided to do some paper piercing to make the lines of the layers pop. I hope that it worked. Here's my up-close and personal shot of my paper piercing. Don't you just love that textured paper!?!?! It's funny all of the little things you notice in a picture that's this close. I noticed that the White paper has a little bit of frayed edges, and I was using my Tabletop Trimmer, so I'm not sure why. It's NOT SU! paper though, this is Papertrey's White paper that's a little heavier weight. I used it for the table-topper's at my sister's wedding. Anyway, I hope you like it and I'd love to hear what you think!!

Stamps: Close as a Memory
Ink: Basic Gray classic ink
Paper: Basic Gray textured card stock, White (Papertrey) card stock, Basic Black card stock
Accessories: Black brads, paper piercing tool and guide, sponge


  1. Fabulous!!! I love this layout and the colors, your creation !is cutting edge. You are quite the artist! This reminds me of when I would go to galleries and there would be that one something that really struck me and stayed in my mind. It is so thought provking! I love it, love it, love it. Way to go. Usually when I see something like this I don't want to see anything else that will conflict with my feelings. True " out of the box" thinking. Thank you, thank you!!!

  2. Absolutely beautiful!

  3. Look at you go on the SCS challenges! Love all the paper piercing on this card! BEAUTIFUL!

  4. I think that you did a great job with the limited supplies challenge! The brad's don't put it over the top either, it finishes it off nicely!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. I appreciate it and thank you for adding a little sunshine to my day.
