Every month, Taylor hosts a Blast from the Past Challenge customer blog hop, where we all get to play with previously released stamp sets from Taylored Expressions. This month's blog hop's theme is SPRING! And I am so excited that it really is starting to look like... spring! (gasp!!) I couldn't wait to play with the In the Park stamp set which has such wonderful sentiments and images. I used the sentiment "wishing you a" and mixed it with the sentiment "Happy Birthday" to create a birthday card for a very dear friend of mine. Being with her is always like being around sunshine :) I stamped the tree twice and cut out the trunk from one of the tree images and glued it ontop of the first one and pulled out the branches a little to make it look a little 3-D. I colored in the leaves and then popped out a couple leaves as well as popping out the kites which were attached with baker's twine into a knot.
I loved the clouds duo and picket fence die from the Taylored Dies series and used them to create a little border edging with the fence and some felt clouds.
