Taylor's Sketch - TESC77

Hello everyone from a gorgeous & beautiful day here in Dundee. We had lunch outside today, and I was saying to my family that it almost felt like summer!! According to the weatherman we are also due for a lovely and hot week next week, so I wander if winter is at an end!!

The card I am showing you today is based on Taylor’s sketch TESC77 from her blog Taylored Expressions. I have adjusted my card slightly, I decided to make quite a big card for this one, A5 size, so the proportions are slightly different to that of the sketch, but I tried to stick to it as much as possible. I added some black buttons to the right hand corner of the card because there was just too much empty space there for my liking! I bought this gorgeous Basic Grey paper from Newcastle yesterday, and I just love the black & orange colour combo, so coloured my image accordingly. The stamp is one of my new Sarah Kay images, which I got from 7Kids College Fund. Isn’t she just too cute!! The wording is by Hero Arts.

Anyway, here is the sketch:

And my card and usual close-up:

The Copics I used are: E00, E11, E31, E33, E35, E37; W3, W5; YR02, YR20, YR23, YR68; R20, R46; G21.

It’s Woman’s Day here in South Africa today, so just wanted to wish all my South African friends a very happy day. Hope you have all had a wonderful day with family & friends. I am really looking forward to having another day off tomorrow!!
