Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #91


Friday is here...wow this week went FAST!
I'm sure most have you have gotten in on the copic giveaway, but if you haven't got your name down yet you have till tomorrow. HERE is that post...good luck (Awesome Prizes!)

Today's card is perfect for the Christmas season. I just received this little sweetie in the mail. It is part of the new "Pure Innocence" line from MFT! Isn't she darling!

I created a card with this ornament in the front. The frame pulls off and there is a ribbon tucked underneath so she can adorn your Christmas tree!
I colored her with my copics and then cut her out with the spellbinder oval die. While the die was still in place I airbrushed the edges giving her some extra highlight.
I coordinated it all with this fabulous Cosmo Cricket paper (Jolly by Golly) and that beautiful frame???? Yes, Melissa Frances...so elegant and perfect for the tree.
I was able to purchase some reinkers this past weekend for one of my favorite color combos and it is E40 and E43...they are a lovely match to kraft cardstock.

Here is the sketch so you can play along in TAYLOR'S challenge.
Don't forget to see what the rest of the sketch crew came up with:
Jami Sibley: More is More
Monika Davis: M.A.D. Stamper
Jackie Pedro: The Scalloped Edge
Lynn Mercurio: Stamperosity
Melissa Sauls: In Stamping Mode
Rachel Sztonyk: Gingerbread Gallery
Alice Lihsuan-Wertz: Alice's Little Wonderland
Lisa Hjulberg: The Craft's Meow


I'm getting all ready for my trip to Montreal next weekend. It is going to be SO FUN. I know there are a few spots left for the certification on the Sunday (November 22nd) so if you would like to fill that spot please e-mail me and I'll send you out an application ASAP!

Have a great weekend!
