Stampin Chic "Limited Supplies" Challenge # 1....Only One

The challenge this week on Stampin Chic.....is "Limited Supplies".....to use just one patterned paper....YES JUST ONE....of course...you can use buttons....brads...ribbon and flowers and plain coloured cardstock.....oh boy did I find this a bit of a challenge......now "LIMITED SUPPLIES" is not a word in my crafting vocabulary.....but it's amazing what you can do when your back is up against the wall.

Paper: CCSR "The Big One" Paper Pack
Stamps: CCSR Sentiments
CCSR: Doodles
Brad: Papermania
I roughly cut out circles from white cardstock and patterned paper....crumpled them up...distressed and inked the edges and matted to create a shabby chic flower....adding a pearl brad to the centre......tore two strips of paper to fit along the bottom.   Stamped the greeting to create the flower stem and added some flower centre icons on the background.
And I quite enjoyed working with my limited supplies....but hey if all challenges were like this......it would take me a lifetime to get through all the supplies I have......well must get busy....I am ticking things off the list but still loads to do....so it's time to carry on crafting....back tomorrow with another challenge card.....I am managing to sneak them in between the work....work... work cards.

    My laptop has all but ground to a halt apparently my download and upload speed has been cut in half - hence the back arrow problem - it's taking me ages to get round blogs - Grrr!!
    they are sending me a new filter box to try - hope that works ...
