TESC 138 - It's a Girl

Hello everyone!! Sorry I am coming to you late on the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge. Blogger imploded and was down for a couple days and actually had to be restored from backups from Wednesday. Someone made a serious boo-boo! Anyway! The Sketch Challenge thread was still able to go up on the Splitcoast forum, so I hope you were able to check it out there or on the other Sketch Challenge players blogs who don't use Blogger!

This was our lovely sketch for the week and I was just dying to be able to use the freshly minted Bringing Home Baby set. It was a bit of a challenge to make that particular set work with this sketch but I think I was able to pull it off! Check it...

I pulled out the remainder of the Emma's Shoppe Project Pantry from last month to put together my card....absolutely love those papers! And although the kits are sold out from the store, I see that the paper pad is still available HERE! Just a little enabling for ya there. ;) I used the smaller images from the set on my card here...and there are so many to choose from! I just chose the ones that I thought would make a good girl card. :) All the chipboard hearts come from Maya Road's Hearts Chipboard, Love Mini Chipboard, and Mixed Scallop Mini Pendant Chipboard sets. I created my pennant flag for the It's a Girl sentiment from the Nested Pennants die by Spellbinders and, of course, had to use some scrunched seam binding from my stash to make a pretty bow there at the bottom of the card. I just couldn't go without having some ribbon on my card somewhere!! :)

I hope you are inspired to put something together for the challenge and, if you do, don't forget to post it over in the Splitcoast gallery using the keywords TESC138!!!! Also make a post about it on the forum thread HERE so we all know to take a look-see! :)

Here are the links to all of the players and guests to inspire you more!

Have a WONDERFUL weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!
