Taylored Expressions Share Joy Campaign: Inspiration Challenge Week

Hello everyone and welcome to Day Two of the Taylored Expressions new Share Joy Campaign, benefiting the Union Rescue Mission of Los Angeles, Prodigal's Home of Phoenix, and Iowa Homeless Youth Shelter of Des Moines. These wonderful charities work tirelessly to bring comfort and care to many homeless individuals and families throughout the year. One way they are sharing joy each and every day is by celebrating the birthdays of their participants, and you can help by sending in your handmade birthday cards! 

This week, Taylored Expressions will help you to create with a different Birthday Inspiration Challenge each day. These charities need birthday cards of all kinds: child, adult, baby, so send in your funny, sweet, pretty, elegant, works of art and know that you will be brightening someone's day in a way only a handmade card can do.  To get all the details on how to participate, please hop over to the Taylored Expressions Blog.

Today's Challenge: Washi tape is a fun and easy way to add pizzazz to any project! With
such an amazing array of patterns, colors, and sizes to choose from, washi tape is great 
for backgrounds, accents, and more. Create a birthday card using washi tape.

My card features several different Doodlebug Washi Tapes...they were placed on the Choice Snow White card stock at an angle and the ends were folded around to the back. The sweet little bird stamps from Taylored Expressions Delightful Day were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics, cutout, and popped up with foam tape. The sentiment bubble and sentiment are from the same set and they, too, were popped up with foam tape. The branch from the Owl-o-ween set was colored with Copics, cut out with the coordinating die, and adhered to the background. The Doodlebug Sprinkles are the finishing touch. 

Be sure to check out all the design team members and alumni who have samples to share for today's can get the full link list on the Taylored Expressions Blog.
