Friendly Flowers

This was for today's Limited Supplies Challenge on SCS. . .to use one flower stamp, one sentiment, up to 3 colors of cardstock and a few embellishments and accessories. A lot of people don't like a challenge that gives you a specific list of supplies that you can use. I do. I guess it's because it narrows down my choices of what I can use. . .and when you have so many stamps, embellishments and accessories (like I do) sometimes it makes things a lot less overwhelming! Someone else does all the deciding for you! :) The flowers and the sentiment were both $1 stamps. The flower stamp was $1 Rhonna Farrer clear stamp I found at Joann's, and the "Friends" sentiment was a $1 wood mount I found at Joann's too. I actually bought it to go with a cute ladybug stamp that was in the $1 bin too, but I haven't used the ladybug yet. The cardstock is fun and colorful because it's from the DCWV Summer Cardstock Stack. I LOVE that watermelon shade of cardstock! Just delicious! I tried to mimic the dots on the flower stamp with the paper piercing around the top of the card. Just something different. Thanks for visiting today! Hope you have a wonderful Friday! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- $1 Rhonna Farrer flower stamp, $1 sentiment; Ink- VersaMagic in Black Midnight, Tempting Turquoise, Pixie Pink, Gable Green; Paper- DCWV Summer Cardstock stack; Accessories- pink polka dot ribbon from Doodliedoo, Making Memories brads, horizontal slot punch, paper piercer, Aquapainter.
