Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #91

Hello everyone! Happy Friday!

Thanks for joining me for another sample card for Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge! Here is the sketch:

I got carried away and made two cards for this sketch!

This adorable bee image is from the collection called Garden Bug from Pink Petticoat.

I paired it up with some digital papers from Two Peas. I love these patterns and the colors worked perfectly with my colored image. The digital papers are from a free kit called Springtime.

Two Peas has free monthly digital kits for all to download and Springtime is their April Free Pea kit! So go and check them out! Digital kits are now my quick solutions for patterned papers!

The lovely Donna sent me this cute stamped image from the Home Sweet Home set by Taylored Expressions. And I couldn't wait to color him! It's a snowman cupcake! How cute is that!!

I used papers from another free digital kit called Be Merry for this card. This is such a versatile holiday and winter themed set of papers!

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:
