Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge 93

Welcome back to the Friday Sketch challenge over at the Taylored Expressions blog!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and workweek. It's been extremely busy here (noticed by the lack of blog posts, lol) but I'm enjoying having my mom and Aunt in town while my mom begins the search for a home here. I'm really excited to have them here and we've been keeping busy all day! Ok, so on to the sketch!!


Looks like a fun one, eh?! I sure hope you can give it a try! Who knows? Maybe you will be selected as a Top Crop by Taylor herself!
So here is what I came up with.

And yes! I used Taylor's Wings of Joy set again!! I keep saying...there are soooo many cute images, I want to get to them all!! :) Plus this is only helping to increase my Christmas card stash.

I stamped out JOY and then colored them in with Copics and then cut them out individually and added little details to each!


I made this little bird's wing a little 3D simply by cutting along the wing with an Xacto knife and pulling it up a bit.


And the letter "O" got a felt snowflake and holly berry treatment.


And finally "Y" got the perfect little bow made with Baker's Twine.

Now, let's see what the rest of the sketch crew has done! I can't wait to see and I know it will be truly inspirational!
