Happy Friday y’all! It’s time for the weekly Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge! I have to admit I struggled with coming up with a good idea for this sketch at first. I know I wanted to use my new Trick or Sweet II set – the little piggie since he hadn’t been inked up yet, and I first thought of how the 9 squares in Taylor’s sketch reminded me of one of my favorite t.v. shows from growing up in the 70’s – you know the one – The Brady Bunch? Then, I thought of one of my mom’s favorite game shows she used to watch – Hollywood Squares with all the stars in them. So I put Piggie in different frames – I’m still not sure about this card but I decided to show it anyway!
I had a good idea for pattern paper with 3 sentiments from the sketch you can hardly see because the piggies take up a lot of room on the front of the card, so I decided to decorate the inside with it, so you can see better. It’s ‘Whoa, Sugar Rush’, ‘Super Sweet’ and ‘We’re all little piggies on Halloween’ – but at first glance this could be a non-Halloween card, right?
So here is the card I finally was happy with that I came up with later. I used For the Love of Cupcakes (it was the first time I used the number candles) and paired it with The Places You’ll Go key ingredients for a fun kid’s card-I imagine I would circle the age they are turning before I send it but I left it blank because I don’t have a recipient in mind just yet. Isn’t this card better than the first? Oh, I forgot to mention, I used Smooch on the numbers (pumpkin & green apple) – the Baker’s Dozen had a product spotlight on that on Wednesday! It was great.
Here is Taylor’s sketch for you to try; be sure to leave a comment on Taylor’s blog with the direct link to your blog post or gallery upload using the Mr. Linky service so we can check it out! You're always welcome to play with any of these sketches at any time.
