Just Because




I love Jen's Sketch For You To Try from last week and I thought it would be perfect for all the little images from the Branching Out and Branching Out Coordinates from Taylored Expressions

I stamped each image with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White and coloured them with copics. I cut out the flower on the sentiment panel and popped it for dimension, then added a Tiny Twinkle to the center. The images were punched out with my 1 1/4" square punch and layered onto a 1 3/8" square of chocolate. 

The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye Bloom and Grow...LOVE the colours in that paper! I felt like the images needed to be tied together though. I tried flowers, buttons, ribbon, but nothing seemed to look right. Then I remembered how Taylor uses the rhinestones as accents under panels on her cards...brilliant! I pulled out my Zva Large Chocolate Crystal Swirls and tucked it under the image panels. I think it's just the right touch!

Thanks for stopping by!
