Taylored Expressions Blast From the Past Blog Hop

[If you're looking for my FTTC card, please scroll down to the next post. Thanks!]

You've either happened upon Taylored Expressions' Blast From the Past Blog Hop or you're here from another site on the hop. Whichever, WELCOME, I'm so glad you stopped by!

I'm using the sketch that was provided to us for my layout, and I've used one of my very favorite Taylored Expressions sets for my card - Discover Your Wings. The sentiments are just so inspiring. I stamped the image on a piece of patterned paper, and although you can't really tell it from the picture, I stamped the large flower image from the set in light brown before I stamped the sentiment. IRL, it really adds a nice touch. All patterned paper is from So Sophie by My Mind's Eye. I tried to keep the design fairly simple to highlight the sentiment, adding some vintage seam binding, some Prima flowers, and a little subtle bling :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! And many thanks to Taylor for having me along! Here are the rest of the entries for the hop so go look and leave some love--I'm sure there will be lots of fabulousness and inspiration to see!
