Today's limited supply challenge was definitely a challenge. Check it out HERE.
We were to make a card in less than 15 minutes...use new stuff....& make it for an annual event. I chose an anniversary card which is one of a few I need for friends of ours.
In order to make this a quick card...I used Our Creative Corner's sketch challenge. This helped me immensely....since the layout is what takes me the longest to figure out.
I used NEW stamps I received as a hostess from Stampin Up called Wings of Friendship. I also used new Designer Series Paper from Stampin Up called Night & Day. I love the black and white theme of this I kept this them with my colours scheme.
The images were all embossed with black embossing powder. I stamped the flourish from this set along the edges of the black cardstock layer...but the photo didn't really pick it up. I used my Bow Easy to make a quick bow.
Card Supplies:
Stamps: Stampin Up~ Wings of Friendship; So Many Sayings
Paper: SU Night & Day DSP, Black, Whisper White
Ink: Versamark, Black EP
Accessories: Black EP, Versamarker, Circle Scallop Punch, ribbon, glue dots, distressing tool
Thanks for looking! Hope everyone enjoys their day off!!
