Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #129

Happy Friday! It's time for another Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge. First is the sketch:


Here is my card:


Ok, don't laugh. I know it looks like she is standing in a pile of dirt rather than in a pile of leaves... I know I messed up on that, but she is still cute, right? =)


She is illustrated by Rachelle Anne Miller and is called Autumn-winds Natural Style. I think this is a retired stamp from Stampavie. You can find Stampavie stamps here.


I paired her with patterned papers from Vinnie Pearce's gorgeous The Apple of My Eye digital kit. This is an amazing kit and I adore the sweet colors in it. You can find those lovely papers in the Basic Kit, the Papers kit or in the Collection kit. Just to let you know that I have a couple more cards made using this beautiful kit to share with you in the next few days! =)


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:

Wow, the coloring is just fab! I think its cute that she's in a pile of dirt -- that's what raking was always like for me! The ground gets wet and stuff! :) Leaves aren't so pretty when you're raking them!
