Limited tools!

Hi everyone, this is my first post from my summer house in New York. I'm pretty happy with this card due to the fact that I have not received my boxes of supplies that I shipped to myself. My cuttlebug arrived yesterday but the binder full of folders and dies is in a box that has not found its way to this sleepy little town. Maggie from cuttlebug challenge blog has a tutorial for these wonderful flowers made from circles of paper.I don't have any of my circle cutting tools here so I turned an embossing powder jar upside down and traced it for my largest circle, and had to cut it out with a pair of 8 inch tailors shears LOL
I had ONE sheet of patterned paper to work with and luckily the 3 sheets of card stock I have worked well with it :) I have a large stack of cardboard sheets that line the packs of wax paper we use in our candy making business so I incorporated that as well.
I attempted the sketch challenge at our creative corner but I think I should have placed my layer askew to "qualify"! Oh well I'm pleased that I could make any card at all today I hope my Stampin'Up! order gets here soon so I will have card stock to play with.
