LSC160 - A Set of Ballerina Notecards - WHICH ONE?

I made these note cards to send to my cousin in Canada. Just out of the blue I felt like doing this in the past week and then imagine my surprise when today's limited supply challenge basically asked to do exactly what I had done. Here is what the challenge was:

*****

Remember how long it took to collect enough stamps and colors to actually feel like you could make something unique over and over? Let's help our new stamping friends and show them that just a few stamps and colors can create very different looks. Here's what you'll need... along with the directions. STAMPS 3-4 stamps CARDSTOCK & INK white or vanilla one piece of designer paper (If it's double sided, you can use both prints!) 1-2 additional solid colors of cardstock TOOLS & EMBELLISHMENTS *any* DIRECTIONS: Make 2-4 cards using the SAME stamps, designer paper, and color scheme. Things that can change to make each card unique are layouts, tools and accessories. The main idea is to get many different looks using the same stamps, designer paper, and colors. It can also show the importance of tools, embellishments, and layouts on cards... how it can really make a card great and how it can really change the look of an image for a totally new card.

My set of cards only used one sheet of 12x12 paper. It was by The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby). I actually made a set of 8 cards and put them in a card box that I got from Papertrey Ink, which makes them look so professional. I am going to add a ribbon to the box and then pop it in the mail. Thanks for stopping by in the middle of my postapalooza Friday!!!
