Taylored Expressions Share Joy Challenge #25 - Sketch + Color Challenge

Taylored Expressions
Hi crafty friends! As you might have seen in my previous post, this week we're having a friend from Los Angeles visit. We'll be heading up to Whistler, BC tomorrow for a fun weekend full of snowboarding!

But now back to my post, it's Thursday, which means it's time for a new Share Joy Challenge! This week I was inspired by the colors and used the new Bunny Tails & Happy Trails set to create a sweet friendship card.

I colored the kitty image with Copic Markers and cut the image out using the coordinating die. The pattern papers used are from the Build A Scene 6x6 paper pack. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the focal panel and colored the word "smiles" with my blue Copic Marker. To make the truck and sentiment extra sparkly and fun, I covered them in Clear Wink of Stella glitter and then added a coat of Shimmer Pico Embellisher. To tie in more of the gray color, I die cut a strip of gray cardstock using a stitched scalloped border die and wrapped some matching pink twine around it. I popped the strip onto the cardbase with foam tape. To finish the card, I added a few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I think this card is just so fun and it would be perfect to send to a friend back in California. I hope you were inspired by today's card and be sure to swing by the Share Joy Challenge Blog to see more amazing inspiration. Thanks again for stopping by and have a wonderful day! ♥
