Birthday Wishes for Taylored Expressions

Today, I'm once again playing along with the Taylored Expressions 9th Birthday Sketch Challenge.  I just had to get one more card in before the challenge ends.  For this one, I went with more of a Fall theme as it feels quite like Fall today.  And, I love that Bushel of Blessings stamp set and the matching dies.  It's been a while since I've done any coloring with my Copic markers so I'm a wee bit rusty.  Well, let's face it, I'm still a novice and just need lots more practice.

Tomorrow I plan to attend the 9th birthday celebration and it's also the day she shows off the new products that will be released on Thursday.  It's so much fun to have her just a few miles away so I can attend events that she sponsors.  Life is good!

Stamp Sets:  Bushel of Blessings (Taylored Expressions), Zinnia Bouquet - sentiment (Taylored Expressions); Copic Sketch Markers:  E33, E37, E39, V12, V15, V17, Y17, YG11, YG13, YG17, YR07, YG09; Ink:  Tuxedo Black Memento; Cardstock:  Delightful Dijon, Whisper White; Patterned Paper:  Golden Grove Paper Pad (Kaiser Craft); Other:  Bushel of Blessings Dies, Nuvo Golden Harvest Glitter Drops (Tonic), Stitched Oval Stacklets (Taylored Expressions), Weathered Embossing Folder (Taylored Expressions)

The sketch I used is from the TE 9th Birthday Sketch Challenge.  For all the challenge details and to share your project, click the image below.
