...Limited Supplies Challenge #164

Happy Friday, everyone! Thank you so much for stopping by to visit me today. This is my submission for today's Limited Supplies Challenge at SCS. Here were the rules (special thanks to Sherry Cheever for filling in today for Jen, and for giving us such an awesome challenge): make a long card at least 8 X 4, limit layers, limit embellishments, use no commercial designer papers....that last one was a toughy, though! I used the sweet giraffe from Bundle of Joy, and watercolored her with markers and an aquapainter. Once it was dry I added some Stickles to the spots for a little *sparkle*. The Pretty in Pink background strip was stamped with the moon and stars stamp from the same set in Regal Rose. I embellished with some Regal Rose ribbon, and made my own "buttons" using the acrylic pebbles from one of the Build-a-Brad sets and some Regal Rose cardstock.
That's it for today, but I will see you all tomorrow with a card for Beate's Weekend Sketch, and the Inspiration Challenge at SCS. Until then....Hugs ~ Mercy
