Limited Supply Challenge

Today's Limited Supply Challenge over at SCS was right up my ally! I tend to lean towards simple layouts and today's challenge required us to use white as the main color, our choice of brown, black, or gray, and one additional color of our choice. We could also use embossing folders but no background stamps. The main image had to be the same colors as our cardstock (no additional colors) and we were allowed one sentiment. We were also allowed to use ribbon or other embellishements. Here's what I came up with...

Stamps: Merry & Warm Words (Retired SU)
Ink: Pure Poppy (PTI) & Basic Gray
Paper: White, Pure Poppy, & Basic Gray
Accessories: Christmas Ornaments Cuttlebug embossing folder, Classic and Scalloped Circle Nestabilities, Pure Poppy double stitched ribbon, dimentionals, stickles

It's a simple card, but I think the ribbon and dry embossed background add a lot! The colors remind me of Ohio State University, but then again I live in Ohio so everything scarlett and gray is attributed to OSU.

Thanks so much for looking today! Have a fantastic day!!! :)
