What the Buzz is about challenge #1


I found Nina's site through Allisons. Nina challenge is a sketch from Page Maps June edition for cards. It looks so simple on paper, but it is rather tricky getting the measurements to line-up correctly.

Cardstock: Whisper White, printed paper is a handcrafted paper by PaperPassport. The papers are handcrafted in India and I have had these papers for a couple of years and just found them recently. I also used SU's Chocolate Chip and Close to Cocoa for the circles. The ribbon is SU's Choc. Chip, I can't remember where I brought the brad from, I used two circle punches and my scallop scissors for the trim. The sentiment is a stamp from Verve Visual, and the ink is from Color Box and is Frost White.
