Inspired by SAF: Limited Supplies

Papertrey Ink held a "Stamp-a-Faire Summer Camp" event on July 21st,
highlighting many techniques, videos and tutorials and encouraging 

crafters to enter cards and projects for each of the challenges. Even 
though I had planned to participate, I didn't get my projects finished 
in time for  the challenge deadlines!!  I will be highlighting lots of 
projects - all inspired by the Stamp-a-Faire videos and techniques. 
I invite you to join me all this week, for a look back at the challenges.

The Limited Supplies Challenge provided a list of papers, stamps and embellishment that could be included on a card design.   
     STAMPS: Natural Beauties only (or another floral set as a substitute if needed
     INKS:  any inks you prefer.
     PAPER: Stamper's Select White, Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist, Simply Chartreuse
     RIBBON: Hawaiian Shores Bitty Dot
     BUTTONS: Simply Chartreuse
     OTHER: You may also add in dies, twine or glitter, if you desire.

I did not have the Natural Beauties stamp set at the time I made this card, so I substituted Botanical Silhouettes as the floral set. 

I ran into some problems when I tried to incorporate a sentiment from this set. I "wandered" from the challenge a bit when I pulled out the circle stamp from Just for You and the focal sentiment from Framed Out #1This panel was mounted onto a scalloped circle of Simply Chartreuse.


Butterfly details:
3 butterflies were die cut 
(SU Embosslits Beautiful Wings) 
from white card stock and then inked with Lemon Tart, Harvest Gold and Summer Sunrise to create the colour variation.

 I repeated the stamped flowers along the left edge of the card interior and added a sentiment from Big Birthday Wishes.

Card Details: (PTI, unless noted)
Stamps - Botanical Silhouettes, Just for You, Framed Out #1, Big Birthday Wishes

Lovely! I especially love the inside and how you used the single stem, Karen!

Lovely card. You did a great job with the challenge. I remember that this one stumped me a wee bit too causing me to digress a bit.
