Papertrey Cards and Limited Supplies

Good Friday Morning!
I haven't decided if I'm happy it's the weekend just yet....
All week they have been calling for snow and colder weather once the weekend approaches. I'm liking these above freezing temperatures and I think I've been on enough dates with the shovel already. I can honestly say, we don't like one another!
Today my SU! order is due to arrive...yipppeee!
In the meantime, I wanted to play with my new stuff from yesterday.
Today's challenge on SCS was to make a card using NO tools. So here is my first card!
I used the new Papertrey Aqua Mist and Designer Papers. Aren't they beautiful?!
I don't have the stamp pad to match so I used Soft Sky. It's a little light on the Aqua Mist so it's difficult to read....sorry!
Stamps: Papertrey Out on a Limb
Cardstock: Papertrey White, Aqua Mist and DP
Inks: Close to Cocoa and Soft Sky
Accessories: Dew Drops, Martha Stewart Ribbon, Dimensionals, Quickie Glue Pen
This card was made along the same lines as the first one but I added some paper piercing to the corner, therefore it won't be good for the challenge. BUT I did have fun making it anyway....lol
Stamps: Papertrey Out on a Limb
Cardstock: SU! So Saffron, Papertrey White, Aqua Mist and DP
Inks: Close to Cocoa and Soft Sky
Accessories: Martha Stewart Ribbon, Dimensionals, Mat Pack and Paper Piercer
Thanks for stopping by today!
Hope you have a GREAT day!

Dawn, you rocked this challenge. I don't like the card I came up with. I will have to try again! This is HARD for me. No paper piercing? No punches? no brads? OUCH!!!!

Hugs and grins
