LSC158 Limited Supplies Challenge - Blast from the Past!

Remember Forest Foliage??? LSC158 Lts Supplies Challenge This week's limited Supply challenge required a small card (less than 4.25x4.25) using only paper scraps and minimal embellies. Well, whilst rifling through my ABUNDANT scrap folders, I ran across some old colors... remember Marvelous Magenta? LOVED that one... I need to hit up the demo BST list for a new pad and reinker now!! And since I was going so far back with the color, I figured I'd find a really old set to accompany it... I came up with Botanicals, which debuted in 2002! That doesn't sound so long ago until you remember it is 2008! Jeez Louise. I used the time-honored Spotlighting technique, but tried it out using the base color in Forest Foliage (I get rid of NOTHING, y'all!) classic ink. Not quite as striking as black, but it serves it's purpose! That tab looks a little outta place, but since we were restricted to scraps... there was a hunk missing from that corner, and I had to cover it up! My vanilla and white scraps are few and far between! hee hee Oh, yeah - the card measures 4x4, and it took 10 minutes. Those were the rulez.

Happy Friday!
