LIMITED SUPPLY CHALLENGE WAS A CHALLENGE!

I have decided that I need to step out of my comfort zone a little bit and do some of the challenges. So, today I sat down and did the limited supply challenge 130 which was a little different since you had to use an old color challenge and an old sketch challenge. You also had to use a stamp set that has not been used in a while. Seeing as I have never done any of the sketches, (well, okay one) they were all new for me but I picked SC97 for my layout because I like the layered look it has. Since I knew I wanted to do a fall card using a retired set from years ago that I borrowed from a friend (thanks Vicki!) CC29 was the color combo I used. It calls for Pumpkin Pie, Bravo Burgundy, Always Artichoke, and any neutral (I picked whisper white). You were only allowed to use one or two embellishments so I used brads and ribbon as mine. I love this little scarecrow because I knew he would be fun to color and he was. I used my stampin write markers and used all the colors of the color combo and some complementary ones as well. There are four stamps in this set and I used them all on this card - LOL! The pumpkins are stamped on the base, and I used the sentiment as my optional item . And yes, I did use my ticket corner punch again - I adore that punch!! A pretty simple card, but I really like the way it turned out. I hope you enjoy it!

That card is so stinkin cute. You really picked great colors for that one. Thanks for reminding why I had to have that stamp set many, many years ago (before I knew what Stampin Up was, just knew it was a very cute set). Tyler said it was really nice.
