Happy Thursday! One day away from the weekend!
Tonight I've got a card that I made for this week's Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #91. I've never participated but have seen a few of the sketches - they are so enticing :) This sketch is fantastic - I love the layout! It took me a little while whether I would stamp some background papers or use some DP. For some reason it took me forever to decide :) I love the Background basics: Retro from Papertrey Ink - I just keep going back to that line with the solid dots. It really has a Christmas-y look too. Merry and Bright and Merry and Bright Additions (also PTI) is another set that I seem to go back to over and over - has great tree images but also some neat stamps that make great backgrounds.
I love the Berry Sorbet cardstock paired with Pure Poppy and Ripe Avacado. I added in Dark Chocolate too (also one of my favs). I did make a small boo boo - I stamped the tree in Hibicus burst by mistake (instead of berry sorbet- whoops). I didn't notice until I had it attached to the ripe avacado circle but I thought it didn't look too awful bad so I left it :)
Anyway, thanks for stopping by for a look see!
