~Americana Trio~

americana-trio.jpg  Happy Friday, everyone 🙂

Today’s Limited Supply Challenge was to make a trio of cards, using the same stamps sets, sentiment set, colors, etc.. all with different layouts.   I really felt like doing some ‘americana’ colored/theme cards, so here you go.  I may have pushed the limits of ‘limited’ a bit, but that was not mentioned in the challenge.  The funny part is, I made all three cards and don’t really love any of them.  I do love the colors.. just not thrilled with my outcome.

Probably because I’m not feeling up to par this morning.   For some reason that happens every so often when I eat shrimp or other seafood for dinner.  I wake up the next day with a rash and a headache.  Guess what?  We went to Red Lobster for dinner last night and I of course, ate SHRIMP.   I’m an idiot.  Should have known better.

Anywho, for better or worse, I’m posting these.  The one in the middle is going to be today’s sketch challenge….. here it is:

thsc15.JPG  This will be THSC15.   Nothing is set in stone here.. flip it, embellish it, whatever makes you happy.  Just be sure to link back here or use keyword THSC15 in your SCS upload so we can all view them 🙂

Here’s the deets on my cards:

Stamps:  Verve Visual Polka Stars and Starlight Starbright Remix (sentiments)

Colors: Real Red, Buckaroo Blue, Very Vanilla, MM DPs

Ink: Real Red, Buckaroo Blue

Accessories: HPH brads, ribbon slide and frame, ribbon, dimensionals, various scallop punches, slit punch, scissors.

TFL!~ and have a blessed day.

    I am always amazed when someone makes beautiful cards, great colors and combinations and then says they aren’t thrilled with them. I think they are wonderful.

    What a rockin’ trio!!!
    I need a sketch for a card I need to do–I hope to use this! THANKS

    Sorry you are not feeling up to par. But for Red Lobster & Shrimp–it might have been worth it. (easy for ME to say!)
