We are excited to welcome Tenia Nelson as our guest designer for this challenge!  Tenia's blog is called Jazzy Paper Designs and you must visit to see the amazing cards that she makes.  Each card is so unique and well thought out.  Tenia gives easy to follow instructions so that you can try her different techniques.  Just check out the card she made for us - I love how the kraft base really showcases the sentiment and images.  Wow!  A stunner of a card and a great take on the sketch!!  Thank you Tenia for being our guest designer!
