Beginning of a New Adventure!

Aloha and E Komo Mai (Hello and Welcome)!
If you made it to my blog via There's Magic in the Air, thanks for coming by! I'm so honored to be a new member of the Design Team through the end of the year! YEAH! I hope I can live up to the challenge and I can't wait to create my projects using Nina's digis! Aren't they the best ever?!? So without further ado here's this week's digi on a card.

And here are the deets:

Image: TMITA (of course!); colored with prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits (aka magic pencil technique); cut out and framed with Nesties, edge distressed with brown ink

Papers: (all papers are Stampin Up! unless otherwise noted) Kraft (K), More Mustard (MM), Chocolate Chip (CC), Old Olive (OO), Very Vanilla (VV)

Techniques: OO panel was scored at 1/4" all around using my scor-pal, MM strip was edged using my SU! scallop punch, CC strip was embossed with Cuttlebug edge embossing folder (sorry I don't recall the name)

Other: buttons are from a mixed package I got some time ago and are tied with hemp twine

Layout: I'm still developing my mojo in regards to layouts so for now I get inspiration from others. This layout was based on one from Tuesday Morning Sketches (#14).

Okay, I think that about covers it. Please, if you have any questions, please leave a comment and I'll either post the information and/or send it to you directly. Can't wait to see what you all come up with! Aloha (Bye)!
