Back to basics

Today's limited challenge was to bring us back to basics. That meant no tools other than your basic paper cutting tool, scissors, sponges and any embellishment that didn't require a special tool. It was tough because you know me and piercing! So, I did all those little dots with a marker ~ thought I was going to go cross eyed! Lots of sponging on all the layers and cut out some extra layers for the middle of the flower. I admit, sometimes it's nice to go back to basics ~ less fuss, less mess.

I'm hoping to work on some projects this weekend that I've wanted to for a couple of weeks now. Looks like it's gonna be a hot one in Houston this weekend!! Now, if only I could see the ocean, I'd be good to go ~ could so use some *beach therapy* right about now. Anywho, hope y'all have a wonderful weekend! Edited to add ~ I used Beate's weekend sketch #39 for this card. Check out her blog listed on the right margin --->
