Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #128

This is my second post of the day. Please scroll down to see my post about Jane's Doodles new digital release for Claudia & Company. Thanks!

Hi all! I am back for a card for this week's Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge. Here is this week's sketch:


Here is my card:


I pretty much followed the sketch with just a little twist. =) I used the super cute Day at the Beach illustrated by Rachelle Anne Miller for my card. I adore all of RAM's illustrations and this one just makes me happy!


I colored this image a little while ago and am really happy that I used it before the summer ends!


I paired the image with October Afternoon's Fly A Kite collection (again!). The fun sentiment came with the stamp.

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:
Please go to Taylor's blog to find out how you can join the fun!
