Blast From the Past Blog Hop

I’m excited to be participating in Taylored Expressions’ Blast From the Past customer bog hop. I realized that I haven’t given my TE stamps enough love lately, so this was a great opportunity to play with them. Here’s my card, using the set Doctor’s Orders.

I used papers from the Cosmo Cricket Early Bird collection for the background and the paper-pieced bedspread. The colors kinda fit the optional color inspiration that was included with the blog hop rules:


I didn’t want to add another layer behind the focal image since the background was so busy already, but it needed some definition so I just ran a red Copic marker around the edges of the ovals. And of course I had to add a little bling in the form of red rhinestones.

Here are the entries from the Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past blog hop! Stay tuned for details on how you can sign up for the customer blog hop next month!
