Take Flight....

Hey there... long time no post!  Things have been a little crazy this week and I'm trying to get back in the swing of things.   So... I have a card for the current Taylored Expressions sketch challenge (TESC156).  



I recently started getting the TE Key Ingredients Kits and so I used this month's kit to make my card.  The stamps used are from the TE set Make It Amazing.  Love, love, love this set!  It is full of gorgeous butterflies, leafy branches and beautiful sentiments.  First chance I get I'm going to get the matching dies.   In the meantime I hand trimmed out the butterfly image I used on the card.  The papers are from the Simple Stories Fabulous 6x6 pad.  The pad came with the KI kit and it is the first time I have had an opportunity to use papers from this company.  I'm really likin' what I have seen and may have to pick up some more of their papers.   At the time of my last TE purchase I decided to pick up some sheets of cork.  I have seen others use them on cards and I was intrigued.  I used some cork on this project and I really like the bit of added texture it adds to your project.  The cork is super supple and easy to cut with your dies and paper cutter.  The leafy branch and banner dies are from TE (love them!) and the circle dies are Spellbinders.  I finished off the card with a few little flowers that also came with the KI kit.

Thanks for stopping by.....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Cream; Bazzill brown, teal and rust; PP:  Simple Stories Fabulous; Ink:  SU! Rose Red; paper flowers;  Dies:  TE Leafy Branch & Banner dies; Spellbinders Circle dies; Cork
