Post #150!!!

(...Sorry, I just noticed that, and had to let y'all know! I've actually stayed with this crazy little blog, and even have people that read it! Thank you for letting me share my cards and projects and crazy life! {{hugs!}})

And now, on to the card...


This one is for today's Limited Supplies Challenge (LSC205). The challenge today was to make a Clean And Simple card, aka CAS or EPLS (easy peasy lemon squeezy) as Jennifer Buck and I like to call 'em (Charlie and Lola, anyone?).

I went with a one-layer card (or no-layer, depending on who you ask), using a standard A2 card base in Pale Plum. I have to confess, I pulled this out *specifically* because I never use purple, and need to get over that particular peculiarity. Then, I took the frame from the November KOTM and stamped it straight in the center using Perfect Plum ink. After masking off the frame (just the frame...I didn't bother with the circles), and I stamped the frame 6 more times using Going Gray, Old Olive, and Pretty in Pink inks. I stamped 'Whateva' from the December KOTM in the center of my main frame with Close to Cocoa ink, and then broke out the Prismacolor pencils, coloring in with coordinating pencils and highlighting the 'Whateva' with white.
To finish it off, I tied on that fabulous pink twill, and I was D-O-N-E. Even with the masking and all the coloring, this took me less than 20 minutes. *grins*

Go find a challenge and play along! Enjoy your weekend! Thanks (again) for stopping by!
