Stampin' B's Follow the List Challenge

This week it was Joanne’s (jojot) turn on the Stampin’ B’s Challenge Blog. Her challenge was a list of items we had to use:

border punch
circle
leaf/leaves/branch of some sort
at least two brads

I made two cards for Joanne’s challenge.

My first card uses a Martha Stewart border punch down the side. I cut out the bird from Flourishes’ Home Tweet Home set, popped him up on the branch, and set him in a Nestabilities circle. The four white brads stand out nicely against the Basic Grey Boxer DP.

My second card has lots of sponging – on the Sizzix die cuts of leaves and flowers, and also on the blue background panel. I am enjoying this new Fiskars corner and border punch, which goes all the way around the outside of my card. The sentiment, which is from PaperTreyInk’s Birthday Basics is in the popped-up circles. And I got the required brads in, too.
