Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #100!!


Happy Friday everyone! It's the 100th sketch at Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge and we are celebrating!

If you join us and spread the word about the Sketch Celebration, Taylor will choose one lucky random winner to receive a $25 gift certificate that you can use at Taylored Expresstions online store. Please check out how to get the badge at Taylor's blog.

Here is this week's sketch:

Here is my card:

I used another image from Pink Petticoat's adorable With Flowers digital set. The yummy and spring-y papers are from a digital kit called Songbird by Sugarplum Paperie and Boutique Cute Dolls and is available at The Digichick Boutique.

I stitched a strip of mini ric-rac from The Ribbon Jar around the circle to help the image stand out a little more.

Taylor is also giving away a $25 gift certificate to the Top 5 creations using Sketch 100! How is THAT for a celebration? You can enter as many times as you wish, but each creation must be linked separately to Mr. Linky. The winners will be judged by the TESC Sketch Crew.

Before you go and start your own projects, don't forget to check out what all the other members of the TESC Sketch Crew came up with using this fun sketch!! Here are the links:

I'm so glad you showed a close up of that stitched on ric rac....I would have thought it was paper otherwise....what a sweet touch! It goes with the wonderful spring theme you have going on!
