Long Tall Sally

Today's limited supplies challenge is being guest hosted by Sherry Cheever(badsherry), Jen was sick so she filled in. Hope you feel better soon Jen!! So for Sherry's challenge she wanted us to make a long card, which meant the measurements had to be atleast 4x8. I usually do 4 1/4x9, but I decided that for what popped in my head, 4x8 would be plenty of room. The other rules for the challenge were to limit the layers and use no designer paper......say it ain't so Sherry!! This is a tough one for me, I mean, you don't get the nickname"Jessica Jean the Layer Queen" for NOT liking layers(thanks Melanie M. for the super fun nickname). So my card is 6 layers, since I average around 12-15, I thought 6 was very limited!! I started with some Kraft cardstock and layered it with Handsome Hunter. I then took a piece of Confetti Cream CS and stamped the French Script BG in Handsome Hunter. On top of that, I stamped the Sanded background in Mellow Moss. Twill tape from SU was used to hide the "seam", and hunter organdy was tied around that for some color. The ribbon was tied in a square knot first, then I took two seperate pieces and tied them around the knot to make it bigger. The main image was stamped twice in Mellow Moss and once in Handsome Hunter. I added some aged copper hardware and it was done!! Thanks for looking and have a great day!!
