Taylored Expressions is one year old and they're having a Par-tay. Hop on over to her blog, say congrats, and join the TE Birthday Bash.
This is the card that I finally finished for yesterday's sketch. Those little squares and I were really struggling last night. I tried different images, stamps, techniques, and colors. Then I said "enough" it just isn't happening. So this afternoon I pulled out the SAB designer pack Stampin Up and tried again. I cut the squares with a CB scallop square die, then used some temporary adhesive to keep them together so I could apply the black rub-on (from Love & Happiness - retired SU). I didn't do a very good job of lining them up when I attached them to the white card stock. Oh well.
I layered that on bashful blue cardstock and added a button and butterfly (MS punch). The certainly celery layer is stamped with Sanded, the sentiment is a rub-on from Love & Happiness, and the ribbon is one of the freebies from SAB. I guess what's so nice about participating in challenges is that I make myself make things that are out of my norm. And then even better, I get to see some really great cards made with the same layout. I loved Stephanie's card. Such talent!
