TESC150 Triple Prize Celebration

November 11th, 2011


Happy Veterans Day!  Today Taylor presents her 150th Sketch Challenge and she chose a sketch I submitted.  Coming up with sketch ideas is NOT my strong point, so I always feel so proud when I come up with something I like – let alone something anyone else likes.  LOL!

Since we’re celebrating the 150th Sketch, Taylor is doing something EXTRA SPECIAL!  There will be THREE random winners drawn from among all the participants in TESC150 and each winner will receive one full size TE stamp set!  How cool is that?  You can get all the details on Taylor’s blog!  Here’s the sketch –

It’s funny because this sketch came from a card I made quite awhile back and seemed to me very specific to the images I had used.  So when I started to work on my card for today I thought I would have trouble finding something that would work well.  However once I started going through stamp sets, I actually had too many ideas!  LOL!  So I’m hoping to get a chance to make a couple more cards with this sketch in the next week or so. 

For today’s card I went with Fall A la Carte.  Just can’t resist those cute little squirrells!  This layout really works for all the Word A la Cartes.

I colored the image with copics and covered the letters with Ranger Crackle Accents.  The sentiment is from the Autumn Wreath Petite set.  I used the Mini Leaves Taylored Die set to die cut some leaf accents that work perfectly with this image.  The paper I used is from the MME Stella & Rose- Mabel 6×6 pad along with SU cardstock Cajun Craze and Sage Shadow.  I colored some ivory seam binding with a Copic marker.

Since we’re celebrating a milestone sketch, Taylor asked the Sketch Crew to also post one of our favorite sketches from the past.  I had fun looking through my old creations and eventually chose my sample for TECC62 (yep it’s so old that it was called the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge back then!).  This card is actually one of my all-time favorite cards and I still have it.

This card features one of my all-time favorite sets Branching Out.  (It looks like TE still has a few of the untrimmed versions of this set and they are on sale – check it out!!)  This card just makes me smile.  Here’s the sketch – I think it’s a good one.
