TESC 156 -- Simply Magical

Happy Friday, friends!  Here we are with the first Taylored Expressions Sketch of the month!  Pretty great, huh?!  Here are the deets:

We will select one featured stamper who will be awarded "Top Chef" honors. Your design and blog will be featured on Taylor's blog during the following week's sketch challenge.

Here's everything you need to know in order to participate:

1. Create a card using the sketch as inspiration. Feel free to switch up the shape or size of your card. As long as your project follows the general sketch, you’re good to go! You may play as many times as you want. Each upload will be entered into our weekly drawing, so the more you create - the better chance you have of winning the PRIZE!

2. Upload your project to Taylor's blog, using In Linkz before 8pm PST on Thursday, April 26th. If you also choose to upload your creation to online galleries (like over on SCS), use the keyword TESC156

3. You’re not required to use TE Stamps on your project, but we love it when you do! And if you’re drawn as our weekly winner and you’ve used TE Stamps on your project you’ll get a little sumpin’ sumpin’ extra (see below)!


1. We will randomly select one person from all of the challenge uploads to receive a $10 gift certificate to the TE Store!

2. If you used predominantly TE Stamps on your project you’ll receive an extra $10 bonus for a total $20 gift certificate to the TE Store.

Now onto my card:

I was thinking of my nieces and my daughter when I started making this one.  I really wanted something that looked like it was coming out of the sky, so I chose the darling Simply Magical set from Taylored Expressions, since I always LOVED unicorns and all things sparkly when I was a kid.

I also pulled out a TE Key Ingredients Kit from a couple of February's ago (yes, I've been a subscriber for that long!).

Stamps:  Simply Magical
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, SU Melon Mambo, Pool Party, Crushed Curry
Paper:  Feb 11 TE KI Kit
Accessories:  Prismacolor pencils & Gamsol, glitter brads, circle nesties, sponges, gelly roll glitter pen, foam tape

Now be sure to stop by the rest of the Sketch Crew's blogs for some sketchy goodness:
