Very Limited Supplies

This was for yesterday's Limited Supplies Challenge on SCS. It was very challenging, because the supplies really were limited! I had to keep putting things down (like punches and embellishments) that I naturally would have added because I was only permitted certain supplies. Here was the list:

A - Choose one stamp for the main image that needs to be colored.
B - Choose ONE of the following:background stamp OR flourish/swirly type stamp or wheel OR patterned paper
C - Choose one sentiment.
D - Any colored ink and solid color paper
E - Choose ONE of the following:ribbon OR brads OR buttons OR eyelets
F - Choose of the following specialty tools:paper piercer OR crimper OR Cuttlebug OR a punch

So, how would you have done? :) I'm glad I did it because it made me realize what my favorite design elements are. I do like how the card came out, but I naturally would have added a little more, maybe with punched corners or a background stamp. The card turned out simple, simple, simple. . .and sometimes that's best! Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Merry & Bright; Ink- Basic Black, Certainly Celery, Groovy Guava, Bashful Blue, Sahara Sand; Paper- Bashful Blue, Palette O'Prints, Whisper White, Groovy Guava; Accessories- paper piercer, Making Memories brads, Aquapainter, blender pen.

You did great! This was a huge challenge for me...so much that I gave up on my first card once I had accidentally used too many supplies! Oh well, keeps us on our toes, right? :)
