Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #127

Happy Friday, my friends! It's time for a card for Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge. I only have a rough draft of this week's sketch, please check the regular version of the sketch at Taylor's blog. Here is the sketch:


Here is my card:


I had very little time to work on this one and thought that it turned out ok. Phew! =) I think the background is a little busier than I liked though...


I used the adorable Deckchair Dreaming from Lili of the Valley for my card. He looks like he doesn't want the summer to end! =) I made this card in such a hurry that I forgot to add shadows to the image... arrrrg!!! I think I'll add the shadows later.


The patterned papers are from October Afternoon's Fly A Kite collection. The sentiment is from this set by Hero Arts.

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:
