Taylored Expressions Challenge

This sketch made me kind of nervous at first. I'm a ribbon fanatic so doing a card without ribbon is tough for me. Sometimes you need to craft outside of your comfort hard as it may be! Click HERE to check out Taylor's Blog!

I love this new set from the Occasions Mini, Forest Friends. The images are just so sweet. The only thing limiting is the colours you can use...brown and gray...that might be about it. Unless, of course, you've seen blue bunnies and purple owls. ;)

I just can't seem to get the picture of the inside of my card in focus or without shade. So sorry, photography is definitely NOT my thing.
I carried the bunny and the tree through inside. All I did was "huff" on the tree again to re-moisten the ink (I coloured the stamp with the Stampin' Write Markers) and stamped it...super simple!
