Sensational Sentiments

This was for today's Limited Supplies Challenge on SCS, Sensational Sentiments. . .to make your background out of sentiments and use NO patterned paper. I never would have thought I'd really have to think about this challenge. I NEVER used to use patterned paper. I always bought it, but didn't know what to do with it! :) So, I made a point to start using it more and more and now it seems I can't do a card without patterned paper! LOL I actually had to re-do the awning part of this card because I made it out of patterned paper. . .oops! It is nice to get back to working with plain cardstock and making my own pattern, though. Hope you don't mind that Regal Rose and Certainly Celery color combo again! I keep going to my scrap bin instead of cutting new paper and it seems there's lots of these colors in there! :) Have a wonderful start to your weekend! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Wild About You, Happy Everything; Paper- Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Whisper White; Ink- Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Basic Black; Accessories- Prima flower, Making Memories brad, ticket corner punch, paper piercer, Lollipop ribbon, Black marker, slit punch, white gel pen.
