Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #123

Happy Friday, my friends!! We are back for another Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge. Here is this week's sketch:

Here is my card:

I tiled the center piece the other way to fit my image.

I used the super super adorable new stamp illustrated by Rachelle Anne Miller called A New Adventure. I just adore RAM's work!

I paired her with Cosmo Cricket's lovely Honey Pie collection. The sentiment is from Nina Brackett's Heartily Yours Additions. I colored the sky with B0000 and run the Colorless Blender over it randomly to get an uneven, more natural sky look.

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:
