You Can't Use What?????

The Limited Supplies Challenge is being guest hosted by Amber Hilman aka bambi64 this week, and she posted it early, so I decided to get right on it. I have been so busy this week, that I haven't really got to stamp, and I am way behind on my commenting. Before I started helping my mom move, I averaged around 300 a day, now I am at like 6, LOL!! Anyway, the challenge was to make a Valentine's day card using no hearts or flowers of any kind, and no shades of red, including pink!! Now that is a tough one!! I decided to use my fall back color, purple(my fav by the way!!). I remember when I first started stamping, Perfect and Pale Plum were my two favorite colors. I used them on everything. I had to force my self not to use them, and now, I have to force myself TOO use them!! If you have been visiting my blog or gallery regularly(thanks by the way, I really appreciate the support!!), I have been using the Gina K. set Just So Hippy alot!!! Melanie did such a great job designing this, and it is quickly becoming one of my favorite sets!! I didn't do anything special on this one, just stamped the hippo twice and colored it, cut the butt out, and popped it up to give it some dimension. I did sponge the edges of the whole card with Perfect Plum to give it some depth. I also used a lot of embellishments, because usually we can't, and I wanted to take advantage of it while I could!!! Thanks for looking and have a fabulous night!!
