Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 2

Yes indeed! It's another sneak peek from Taylored Expressions and today I'm giving you a peek at Downtown Diva - isn't this little shop so sweet!? I know, that IS what it says right there on the building, ha! Downtown Diva is a very fun set and it's so versatile - I can't wait to show you more tomorrow, hee hee! I used Mojo Monday 80 for the layout of this card, but I had to flip the sketch so it would work with the image. I wanted the little shoppe to face toward the center of the card, not the outside. I colored the images with Copics and then added a little blue Twinkle Dot in the center of the flower.
Another announcement from the Taylored Expressions store for you: New Twinkles deal - Taylored Expressions will have two new tiny twinkle carousels available for you tomorrow! One carousel is all clear rhinestones in various sizes and the other is Multi-colored twinkles in various shapes (stars, hearts, flowers, teardrops, squares, etc.). When you purchase one of each of the new twinkles, you'll receive a multi-colored round twinkles carousel for FREE. Be sure to come back by tomorrow for more fun release day announcements!

Now hop on by the rest of the Baker's Dozen to see what they have cooked up for you today!
