365 Cards Day 2 Challenge - Less is More

Today the 365 Cards Blog has a challenge to use ONLY 2 Embellishments on your card. That can be a toughie....I did my best with my Sugar Nellie stamp. I don't think she's ever been inked up before....but she's not a virgin anymore!

The edge of the card has a little bit of linear embossing mixed in with my new "swiss cheese" punch from EK Success (that's a great name for the punch, isn't it?).

Scalloped panel is from a K & Co Mat pad called, "Seaglass". The die cuts mats are colorful, with decoratively cut edges, and boy are they fun and easy to use!

Nellie is colored with Copics and the two little flower embellishments in the upper left hand corner are merely trims from the fabric store. I cut off one tiny little flower from each length of trim and glue dotted it on. The "Sweet Pea" saying is from one of the clear stamp sets at Joanns/Michaels. It's an easy, straightforward kind of card...and that's what I always end up making....easy cards! lol

Bachelor's on tonight...who do YOU think he'll choose? As long as my eye cooperates, I'll be able to watch. I got more eye drops (steroids again) blech... I only have to use them for a short while thank goodness. I couldn't stand it before - what nasty things steroids are! Not sure if my headache is related to my eye thing or if it was from my lack of caffeine today...I know how to remedy the latter though....Off to Starbucks!
