Taylored Expressions sketch

With other various committments, it is rare I have a chance to play along with many challenges, but this week I had a little stamping time and decided to use some new stamps from Taylored Expressions and work with Taylor's sketch for the week. Here is what the sketch looks like:

And I created not one, but two cards! Here's the first:

This card features the ties and sentiment from the Boys Will Be Boys set. The gorgeous paper is from the So Sophie line from My Mind's Eye and I doubled up the buttons for a masculine embellishment.

This is the same layout, rotated on it's side, minus one band of paper/cardstock/embellishment. But no matter, I still think it turned out great! These stamps are from the Hangin' Out set. I used the birds as clothesline carriers and added prisma glitter and Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to the dress to glam it up. The paper is once again from My Mind's Eye (I heart MME!)

I hope you have a chance to get creative this weekend. Maybe try your hand at a challenge! They are really fun! See you again soon!!

Both cards are very nice, what a great way to use that shape nestability with the dress inside of it, the birds balance it out nicely. And that it cute paper too, I think I have some of that in my stamp drawer!

I love 'em both, great work. I have such a hard time with men's cards, yours really rocks.
