Pretties Wednesday - Cuddle Me!

Two weeks ago Jana challenge the Prettie Girls to a Limited Supply challenge. We had to create a card or scrapbook page using the following items:

1 dry embossed piece (embossing folders and texture plates count!)
2 pieces of patterned paper
3 colors of solid cardstock (this includes any neutrals you use)
4 embellishments
5 layers

So, the dry embossed piece must be one of your patterned papers or your 3 colors. And, at no point should there by more than 4 layers under a top piece of cardstock. However, if you have your base card with a second layer on may have multiple small pieces each with 2 layers under them...right? Oh...and you may use as many tools as you like. Guess this isn't so much limited as just very specific!

Yikes .... the first thing I did when I read this challenge was to print out the rules cause I was sure I would forget something ... I don't do well with limited supplies LOL. And I was right cause I had all my card almost finished when I realised I hadn't done anything with embossing .... so I decided to emboss my photo corners ... phew that was a close call LOL!

I wasn't sure whether the 4 embellishments .... meant 4 in total like 4 brads or similar. Or whether it meant we had to use 4 different embellishments ... not wanting to mess up at this stage I emailed Jana and she told me that as she hadn't stipulated this I could do either ... so I went with 4 different types.

My embellishments are:
  • The embossed photo corners
  • Brads
  • Ribbon
  • Rhinestone ( you may need to look closely at Sophia's ear to see this)

Don't forget to check out what the rest of the Pretties girls created for this challenge:
Stamps: Cuddle Me - Paper Pretties
Paper: White; Soft Sky & Chocolate Chip - SU; DP - SU
Other: Black Ink; Oval Nestabilities; Word Window Punch; Brown Grosgrain Ribbon; Brown Brads; Photo Corners Punch; Tiny Mosaic Embossing Folder; Foam Tape; Copics
