Bloggers Challenge #64: Designer Paper

Stamps: Whipper Snapper
Paper:
Eggplant Envy; Pink Pirouette; White; Basic Grey Eva collection

Ink:
Black and various reinkers to color with

Other: Corner Punch; Nesties; MM brads; Prima flowers
Card Measures 5x5


I don't normally participate in Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenges (sketch challenges)...for no real reason. But I may start! One thing I love about sketches is that half the work is already done! A few weeks ago I was seeing this layout on other blogs, for TCC30 and it really caught my eye. A couple of nights ago I finally got a chance to try it.

I am pretty happy with the end result. I {heart} this Basic Grey paper! It is from the new Eva Collection. I love the 6x6 pads that they make because they shrink down the pattern to be more suitable for cards. I used one of the scraps from this card to make another card that I will post tomorrow. No brads on tomorrow's card, as I went over the brad quota on this card with 9 brads! hahahaha! :)
Have a Fun Friday
