CSS Alumni Challenge Blog Hop 4

Welcome to another CSS Alumni Blog Hop Challenge. This time we were limited on the supplies we could use. Which for me was appropriate since I made my card while camping last weekend. I was very limited with supplies. Here is the list of limitations that Carolina gave us for the challenge:
Neutral Card Base (White, Ivory, Black, Brown, or Kraft)
Two Different Colors of Card Stock
One Pattern Paper
Three Buttons
One Color of Ribbon
As Many Images as We Like
Here is my card using the limited list:


My card base is Kraft.
I used Pure Luxury Fresh Asparagus and Turquoise Sea for the two colors of card stock.
My piece of pattern paper is from the Basic Grey Kioshi pad.
I had some green flower shaped buttons that matched the Fresh Asparagus card stock perfectly.
I added a strip of Fresh Asparagus Ribbon.
And my images and sentiment are from the Spring Mix stamp set.

If you are following the hop from the beginning you should have come here from Melissa's blog. Your next stop is to see what beautiful creation Sharri has to share with us. Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you enjoyed the blog hop. You can stop by StampTV.com for more inspiration and to purchase the stamps, paper, and ribbon used in my project.
