CSS Limited Supplies Hop

It's CSS Hop time again!! THIS time we are hopping with the "Limited Supplies" requirements. This is always fun for me to see what I can do with what limited supplies are available to me. If you came here from Shannon Hawkins blog, you're in the right place. If you didn't start at the beginning, head over to
Betty Neville's blog to see all the projects the CSS Team have created for you.  Here are the requirements for the hop.

Blog Hop Details:
Create a CAS card or project that contains only the following items and no others:
  • Your design must be CAS - Clean And Simple: lots of white or open space with one main focal point
  • One image
  • One sentiment
  • One layer card - your card base plus only one more layer
  • Embellishments - you can use any number of embellishments you want, but they all must be the same color



My card base was created with Gina K's Pure Luxury Heavy Base Weight White card stock.  I used my Scor Buddy to give it a diamond embossed background.

My image is from Melanie Muenchinger's set, "Little Tees".  In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month I decided to go pink.  I stamped the image in Versamark and embossed it with white embossing powder.  I then sponged Memento Angel Pink all over my Circle Nestabilitie layer and then added some Memento Rose Bud along the edges. 

My sentiment is from Melanie's "Hand-in-Hand" set.  I used my Memento markers so that I could color half the sentiment and stamp it on top, then the other half for the bottom of the tee.  I added a small rhinestone on the ribbon and for my ribbon on the corner, I added a small butterfly that I spotted sitting lonely in my embellishment drawer.  *smile*

My card also remembers my dear friend, Bette, who lost her life to breast cancer.  I sure miss and love her.

Don't forget to stop over at the StampTV Forum for a list of all the participants in the hop and a chance to join us in the fun.  Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you enjoyed the hop!!  *smile*

A very simple but very touching card. I have a friend going through treatments now and I think of her very often. I went to school at AIB many years ago, so seeing your office is off Fleur Drive brought back many memories. My friend going through the treatments is actually at the Methodist Hospital in Des Moines.
