Taylored Expressions #123

If you are an avid card-makers like me, you must have known about Alice! Yup, the one and only Alice's {little} Wonderland .Thanks to her amazing blog, I have seen her awesome work with many projects and learned about Taylored Expressions Challenge (see here). I finally got up the courage to join for the very first time. Now I'd LOVE to have Taylored Expressions Stamps, but living here in my part of Canada, there is NO Taylored Expressions stamps in sight. So forgive me not being able to use the stamps for this challenge. Sweet Alice did tell me a long while ago that it is OK to use other stamps. Hope that still applies!
So here's the fun sketch
I actually used up my scrap pieces for this challenge and I am proud of that :)
Birthday Girl
I used the SRM stickers and directly applied it onto the dandelion image. Love the transparency!!
As we just celebrated our son's 16th birthday, I am sharing his photo with his sister Stephanie.
Have a SWEET day, my friends!
