My friend Ted, at Happily Ever Crafter just posted his monthly challenge, and I was anxious enter. Ted's challenge was to use the following, and ONLY the following to make a card:

•ONE (1) base card (of any color)
•ONE (1) matting paper (solid or pattern is fine)
•ONE (1) stamp image (you can choose either image or sentiment, not both)
•ONE (1) ink color (Versamark for embossing can be your ONE choice)
•ONE (1) embellishment (ribbon, button, brad, flower, etc.)

You can see Ted's post here:
This was kind of tough for me... I had to resist the temptation several times to add more. LOL!

My card consists of the following:

1 card base - Plum Pudding
1 matting paper - Kraft
1 stamped image - PTI YOF: Violets
1 ink color - Fresh Snow
1 embellishment - Plum Pudding Satin Ribbon

Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
