Taylored Expressions Share Joy Challenge #3 - Sketch & Tic Tac Toe

Taylored Expressions
Hi crafty friends! Welcome back to the third Share Joy Challenge! For this week's challenge, I was loosely inspired by the sketch and for the tic tac toe, I decided to incorporate sequins, twine and dry embossing in today's card.

I decided to make a sweet friendship card to send to a friend back in Los Angeles. I used the cute frog and flowers from the "Pocketful of Sunshine" set to create a fun scene.

I colored the stamped images with Copic Markers and fussy-cut them out leaving a white border. I created my window scene by die cutting two stitched rectangles from white cardstock. I used pattern paper from the "Build A Scene" 6x6 paper pack for the background. I die cut the grass using the Grass Border die from green pattern paper from the same pack. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the sky background using my stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect placement. I dry embossed the kraft cardbase using the "Dotted Lattice" Embossing Folder. Instead of a banner like in the sketch, I added some twine going across the top of the card. I added two small banner strips using pattern paper from the same paper pack under my scene which was also inspired by the sketch. To finish the card, I added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins from the 4mm and 6mm Enchanted Garden sequin mixes.
