Taylored Expressions Challenge #58!

Yeah! It's Friday! I just picked up Kim Hughes' brand new sets from the post office and couldn't wait to play! I love the mushrooms in this set...not to mention the giant gnome (I didn't use him this time).

Have you checked out Craft Critique today? They are a chattin' about Kim's new sets....hop over there for a chance to win some new rubbah!
For this card I decided to deviate from my typical "yellow green" and go the more primary color route. I stamped and colored (with copics) my little scene first and then cut it up and laid it on my Scenic Route background paper. I frayed out my ribbon a bit and swiped some color on the sentiment. I HAD to add the "cheeky clip" because I knew I had ribbon that was the perfect match!

Here is the sketch so you can play along in TAYLOR'S challenge.
Don't forget to see what the rest of the cupcake crew came up with:
Stephanie Hargis: Steph's Stampin' Stuff
Vicki Chrisman: This Art that makes me Happy
Jami Sibley: More is More
Monika Davis: M.A.D. Stamper
Donna Baker: Stamp A Maniac
Jackie Pedro: The Scalloped Edge
Lynn Mercurio: Stamperosity
The cupcake sampler this week is Broni Holcombe, you can find her beautiful gallery of creations HERE.
