Artful Inkables - Wednesday Challenge! Please join in!

Here is my card for this weeks Artful Inkables Design Team Challenge. Kim is our hostess this time and it is a Limited Supplies challenge.

We'd love to have you join in - see the details of how to do that at the end of my post.

These are the Limited Supplies rules:

1. Only use 2 layers in addition to the card base.
2. Only one kind of embellishment allowed (ie - ribbon OR brad)
3. You may use one sentiment
4. No designer paper (!)
5. Your card must be any size of a square.

My card is a 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" square. I used two Cuttlebug folders to emboss the card and one panel. I pierced the edges around the dove and sponged both panels. The image and sentiment are up on foam dimensioinals. I added the ribbon under the panel - cut a piece for a knot and attached it to the ribbon with a glue dot. This pretty Dove is from the newly released Olive You set by Artful Inkables.

I colored my image lightly with Prismacolor markers - filling in the olive branch and just outlining the dove.

So I think this proves that - Yes - you can make a card without Designer paper! Fun Challenge Kim.

We'd love to have you join in on this limited supplies challenge! Just load your card on your SCS gallery and use the key word ARTINK so we can all see what wonders you create!!

If you don't have an SCS gallery then just link your card to the Artful Inkables blog in a comment here.

We're excited to see what you can come up with!
