With love...

Hi, Friends.....

I am back with a really sweet and pretty card that I made for a few challenges:

1. I am squeaking in on the last day with this second card for the Taylored Expressions - 9th Birthday Sketch Challenge. Look at the fun sketch Taylor made for us to try:
2. The Winnie & Walter August Color Combo Challenge, which ends in a couple of days!!  Look at the wonderful color palette Heather chose this month:

3. Winnie & Walter also has a new Rerun #23 - Tree For All Seasons challenge.  The Rerun set has many variations you can make with or without trees. Shay's lovely card with the leafy rounds used alone reminded me of doilies...which I used!

I used another of the Winnie & Walter Freebies. Yay!! This time it is their Daily Grind Collection Vol. 1 - Holiday Mint for the scripty little tag.

Do you like the sweet little birdie nestled in the layered flower? I think he looks adorable there. :)

Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set (has scallops)
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set (straight edged panel and patterned paper tag)
Winnie & Walter - LS Exclusives: So Tweet with Evelin T Designs stamp set
