Taylored Expressions Blast From the Past Blog Hop!

Welcome to Taylored Expresions' Blast From the Past Blog Hop! This month's blog hop theme is LOVE so of course I had to pull out my very favorite TE set called "Love is Sweet"! This set has some of the cutest images in it and I am very partial to this kissing cuppie image! Isn't is SO cute? :) I stamped them and colored them with my Copics. I then cut them out and popped them up on some old book paper that I had lying around! The sketch I used is the Viva La Verve sketch challenge #2 and I paired it with some more BasicGrey Bittersweet dp! I used my swirls CB embossing folder to emboss the panel behind the main image and then tied some fancy ribbon on! As a final touch I sponged all of the edges with some Tim Holtz Antique Linen distress ink and then added some pretty pearls to the corner of the card!

So now that you've seen my card, make sure you check out everyone else who is participating in today's fun blog hop! Also, if you haven't already, please stop by the Taylored Expressions blog to see all of the details!






Thanks so much for hopping by my blog today! I should be coming home from the hospital at some point today (I HOPE) so make sure you check out my blog candy a couple posts below in celebration of my daughter's arrival! :)
