Thank goodness it's Friday! It's been much too long since I participated in the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge and I just couldn't resist this week's sketch!
Isn't it a fun one? I love how sketches are always open to interpretation. I decided to make a muted spring card, as I love the combination of colors (Baja Breeze, Really Rust, More Mustard) that I found on the cute patterned paper. I began by stamping my flowers from the TE set, Bugabee, which is one of my favorites because it has matching dies.
I stamped and die-cut the little bees to replace two of the square elements in the sketch and added some vellum wings.
I also used the TE Grass Border die to separate the two panels and finished off with a nice, big, happy "thanks" -- I'm thankful for a lot of things, not the least of which is the bright sunshine coming in through my window!
