Hugs & Kisses *Bling*

This is a combination of Todays' Limited Supply Challenge to make a card for someone who's life or a family/friend who was touched by the peril of cancer without designer paper, ribbon or embellishments other than faux. WOW how are we suppose to comply with those restrictions,TeeHee. I also added **bling** so it qualifies for Thursday's Ways To Use It Challenge to "Bling out the glam".This was my 2nd attempt to day at this card. 1st one disaster trying to use SU markers with WC paper (need more practice) so I went back to my reliable Prisma Pencils and Gamsol. Used a corner punch in opposite corners on different levels of matt. I have loved the Cafe stamp set from MFT especially the awning which I do not have YET! so I made a lamp shade with the word window punch and popped it up. Image is also popped up. Background is from Simply said with the solid daisy stamped off then onto the paper in Pixie Pink then the dotted outline stamped using Pink Passion. Center colored w/ Old olive Sentiment layers cut at opposite corners w/corner punch. Sentiment was stamped with Pixie pink then Old Olive. I cut a very thin stip of the pink paper and attached it under the sentiment for a faux ribbon and tied a paper knot to attach to the faux ribbon.

Well fishing was not in the cards today. The wind was though. We will try tomorrow. Day is not a total loss though. I think I talked my honey into a trip to Tallahassee.
