Thanks So Much!

This is my second post of the day! Please scroll down a smidge for my other post! Thanks!!

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday!

I have been having a blast using the February SFYTT Sketch all month long...in fact, it's a sketch I really LOVE and plan on using alot!

For my card today, I wanted to pair the VERY first Taylored Expressions set I worked with when I joined the Bakers Dozen, Branching Out, along with the newly released (and oh so fabulous) It's A Banner Day 1. Jen's sketch was perfect for what I had in mind!

I started by cutting and embossing a piece of Choice Buttercream cardstock with Circle Nestabilities, and with the paper still in the die, I stamped the bird and branch from Branching Out in Memento Tuxedo Black. I then traced the inside of the die with a Copic Multiliner to create a frame, and of course, added some sponging with Memento Cantaloupe and Memento Tangelo. I colored the bird and branch with Copic Markers.

I stamped one of the banner frames in Memento Rich Cocoa onto Kraft cardstock and cut it out with the Banner Day Die 1. I then added in the sentiment, "thanks so much", also from It's A Banner Day 1, in Memento Tuxedo Black.

The patterned paper is all Togetherness from Cosmo Cricket (I can't WAIT for their new collections to be available) and added a bow tied with Bakers Twine. Three antique brads in the top corner finish this one off. As I have been prone to do lately, I decided to NOT sew...I kinda like the cleaner look these days.

Here is the Taylored Die I've used on my card today!
