Taylored Expressions Sketch 10/16

I just can't seem to stop reaching for my Riley stamps. Maybe it's because they're just too darn adorable!


I made this card for the Taylored Expressions challenge today. This is a very straightforward, clean and simple card. The Riley is colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. The buttons, brads, and burlap string are from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts. The sentiment is from Birthday Surprise (Verve Stamps). I totally stole the idea for the sentiment tag from my friend Michelle Woerner. I was at her house yesterday and she was finishing up one of the cards for the Unity challenge. I kept throwing out suggestions and she kept trying her own ideas and nothing was working right. She finally came up with a tag similar to the one I used on my card. The only difference is that my tag has asymmetrical tails. This was actually by accident, but then I liked it so I left it! I just love happy accidents!!
