Less Is More Challenge no. 33, card 5

Hi Stampers. I'm posting card no. 5 for LIM. They are over 300 entries and there is still lots of time left if you haven't played yet. I stopped by Michael's today with only a $10 bill in my purse. The store is all geared up for Halloween, which I don't do. It bothers me a bit that Thanksgiving is given such short shrift. Then we leap head first into Christmas. T-Day is my favorite holiday of the year.

With very careful shopping, I purchased 8 stamps and one punch, that with my 10% senior discount allowed me to spend $8.54 cents. They're all dollar stamps and a tiny flower center punch. I was very careful in choosing my stamps because I really do have enough stamps. But these images spoke to me, especially at $1.00.

So my card uses neenah solar white for the base, a scrap piece of SU certainly celery and the EK Success notebook border punch. I dry-embossed a small Cuttlebug folder, I purchased when the CB first came out and I couldnt get enough folders. The Congrats is from Wordsworth clear stamps. Don't you just love when you find a greeting that is vertical? It's stamped in Mary Matchables crimson red. My few Marvy inkpads are very old, but they still stamp fresh. Very little re-inking is needed. Well, hope you like my card. I'll be back tomorrow with no. 6.
