Friends in Sunshine and in Shade

Good Morning!
I've got one last card to show you from
Taylored Expressions before they become available this morning!
I'm LOVING this new set by Nancy McKinney called Branching Out!
Normally I'm one who makes cards with loads of layers and everything is usually "matchy matchy" as some of my friends say....lol but this set gets me stepping outside my creative box....I really like that!
I stamped the tree top on a piece of Good Morning DP, cut it out and popped it up on dimensionals. This card would be great to send to a friend for a little pick me up :)

Stamps: Branching Out; Cardstock: Choc chip, Kiwi kiss, Choice Bright White and Good Morning DP; Inks: Choc Chip; Accessories: Eyelet Border Punch, HPH, Choc poly twill, Paper snips, Dimensionals

All the sets are now available at Taylored Expressions!!

If you were at the release party this morning at Paper Craft Planet - you might have seen this awesome color challenge that Taylor has created:

To celebrate the release of her new stamps over at Taylored Expressions, Taylor is giving away a Key Ingredient Birthday Boy set. All you have to do is to create a card inspired by these colors and upload it to Paper Craft Planet using the tag: tecolorchallenge (all one word, all lowercase). You must have your cards uploaded by Monday, March 9th at 8am PST to be eligible for the Key Ingredients Set. We can't wait to see your lovely creations!

Thanks for stopping by today!
