You Make Me Smile

If you're looking for my Sparkle Creations March Preview, please scroll down or click HERE. Thank you!

Hello! Hope you're having a great week! Yay for it almost being the weekend!

I have a card that I made using the Taylored Expressions set, Love Grows Here. It's part of the Embracing Grace line, which is illustrated by Emily Berger. It is filled with sweet tree images and sentiments. I chose to use the one with the little birdie. I stamped the image and colored it with Copic markers. I added a fence using the coordinating Picket Fence die. For sketch inspiration, I used Jen's Deconstructed Sketch #42.

Here is the Taylored Die I used on my card today:
