Taylored Expressions March Blast from the Past Customer Blog Hop!!

Hello everyone and welcome to the Taylored Expression's March Blast from the Past Customer Blog Hop!!!! You are going to find sooo much inspiration along the hop...each project will feature Taylored Expressions Stamps and products. The theme this month is Spring so, of course, I had to plant me some flowers!!!

The awesome inspiration sketch created by Sankari Wegman was used for my card today....I flipped it to accomodate the flowers. The flowers and one of the mushrooms from the Garden Party Blooms set were stamped on various October afternoon pattern papers, cutout, and popped up with foam dots. The same papers were used on all the layers....the sun was stamped with Summer Sun, the leaves were stamped with Old Olive, and the larger mushroom was stamped with Vivid Aqua. The sentiment from the Sweet Spring set, buttons, and twine finish it off.
Recipe:
Stamps: Sweet Spring, Garden Party Blooms
Paper: Real red, Vanilla, White, Bella Blvd dp, October Afternoon's Cherry Hill, Seaside, Modern Homemaker
Ink: Real Red, Summer Sun, Old Olive, Vivid Aqua
Accessories: Buttons, Twine







Thanks for joining us today on the hop...have a great day!!
