Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #90

Hello everyone! It's Friday and it's time for another sample card for Taylored Expresstions! Here is the sketch:

Here is my take on the sketch:

I used this adorable digital Mr. Snowman stamp by the talented Jane Beljo!! She had a couple of her cute images debuted at Squigglefly in the beginning of this month.

Isn't this snowman fabulous? I added the swirly lines (see! I couldn't even draw straight lines!!) on Mr. Snowman's belly to add a little personal touch. Hope you don't mind, Jane!

Please go and check out Jane's blog and her releases! She is such an talented artist. Oh, she also makes handmade Fimo buttons for sale and I have heard that they are too pretty to use!! So go and check out her work!

I am also entering this card for the "Distressing" challenge over at the Bee Crafty blog. The challenge is to include distressing and any one digital image in a papercraft project.


That's all I have for you today! Please go and check out what the other members of the TESC Sketch Crew came up with! Here are the links:
