Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge 88

Happy Friday!

Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping by for my first sample card for the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge as a TESC Sketch Crew member! First of all, here is the sketch:

And here is my take on it:

Once I saw this sketch, I knew which stamp set I was going to use right away. The problem was patterned paper... I turned my paper storage area upside-down in search of some baby themed paper to no avail. I ended up using some of my favorite PTI dotty DPs with some Sassafras Sunshine Lollipops paper.

I also turned the sketch 90 degrees. The piece of sentiment punch-out has a dimensional in the middle and a rolled up glue dot at each end so that it gives an arched look. All four stamped images are colored with Copic markers, cut out, then raised slightly with some rolled up glue dots. The circle and flower "cushion" that the baby is sitting on is then popped up with some dimensional adhesives.

That's it for my first sketch sample! Hope you like it!

Don't forget to check out what the other members of the TESC Sketch Crew came up with! Here are the links:
