Taylored Expressions Blog Hop

I'm super excited to be participating in my first Taylored Expressions blog hop! And I'm SUPER glad that they allow you to use a set from the PAST since I only have one TE set. I know, I know! I should get more but I have to make like 170 more cards before I can. (Long story!)

For this blog hop, there was an optional sketch we could use made by my friend Sankari Wegman. Of course, I had to make a card based on this sketch because I love her so much and her sketch is genius! I used The Places You'll Go stamp set. I adore that TE has charity sets! That makes my heart happy! The patterned paper is Basic Grey, the rhinestones are Best Occasions and I finished the heart with some Glitz Stickles in Sequins, my first time using the Glitz kind, it's AMAZING! I also used a Fiskars border punch for this card.

And here's another card I made with this same set, obviously since it's my only one. The paper on this is Pink Paislee 365 Degrees. I punched some holes in the striped paper and threaded the sheer ribbon through. The image is colored with Copics. The die is Nesties Big Scalloped Ovals, the punch is EK Success.

I hope you all enjoy the hop! :)
