Papertrey July Blog Hop Challenge

Hey guys! When I saw that the PTI blog hop was coming up, I knew I wanted to join in this time around. So when I read Nichole's post this morning and saw that the challenge was to use office supplies, I knew this would be a perfect prompt myself to create something outside my comfort zone.

I set out to create something elegant but still using office supplies, and here's what I came up with.
A close up using my brand new Copics that I picked up the other day. I'm in love!
And here is how I incorporated the supplies into my design. I used some making tape to make a frame, drew a black line around the frame to add emphasis, and stapled the ribbon to secure it on the bottom of the card.
Supplies: Cardstock- Papertrey Ink (Lavender Moon, Stamper's Select White, Vintage Cream), Ink- Tsukineko (Memento Black), Copics- R20, R22, R35, YG17, YG25, YG67, Stamps- Papertrey Ink (Delightful Dahlia), Ribbon- Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream Satin) and Offray (1/8" Cream), Black Journaling Pen- American Crafts, Other Supplies- Staples and Masking Tape.

Thank you for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of the hop and don't forget to come back in a few days for my 1000th Tweet Giveaway.
