EDIT: I forgot to include some important message for this week's Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge since this week's sketch is special. Here is the detail:

Fridays are Sketch Challenge days at the Taylored Expressions Blog and we'd love to have you play along! Every so often we'll have a fun added BONUS to playing the weekly TESC... PRIZES! You never know what week Taylor might offer a prize so be sure to check her blog every Friday for the sketch. Prizes will be given to Taylor's Top Crops. Today is one of those days as Taylor is offering BONUS PRIZES for TESC106. You'll have through April 2nd to play along and enter your card for a chance to win your choice of FREE STAMP SET from the Taylored Expressions Store. Winners will be announced on April 5th.

Hello my friends! This is my second post of the day, please click here to see a card that I made for Jane's new digital stamp "Princess Mia." Jane is also having a give away on her blog, so make sure to check out her blog!

Now on to this week's Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge. First the sketch:

Here is my take on the sketch:

It's another liberal take on Taylor's sketch, but I couldn't help myself! Is this some kind of disease? Unable-to-follow-sketches syndrome? LOL! Ok, I really wanted to use this fun stamp from Norma Fickel's spring/Easter release at Whiff of Joy Stamps. This stamp is called Spring Joy. Such a delightful image! =)

I was experimenting with shooting my cards at different angles. Sorry if they look weird... =) The lovely patterned paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Girl Friday collection. The ribbon is from Fancy Pants Designs. And the sentiment is from this versatile set by Hero Arts.

Well, that's all I have for now. Don't forget to check out what all the other members of the TESC Sketch Crew came up with for this sketch!! Here are the links:
