Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek Day 2

Welcome back to Taylored Expressions sneak peeks!  I have another fun and happy card for you this morning using a set called In the Park.  This new set has all things summery with images that make me want to go read a book under a big shade tree.  I love big tree images, so that is the first stamp I reached for from this set and of course, I got it all inky with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and Copic markers.  The image is cut out with the large Labels 11 Nestabilities die and I sponged around the edges in So Saffron and Pumpkin Pie ink.  The papers and ribbon are from the coordinating Summertime Project Pantry Kit which features paper from Echo Park called Sweet Summertime - which is DARLING!  I stamped the sentiment twice, popping the center up on dimensional tape and cut the rest out with the Small Circle & Scallop Nestabilities dies - I used MOJO146 for the layout.

The Baker's Dozen have 2 sweet new sets to show you today - In the Park and Weigh To Go - stop on by and see:
