Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge 145

I am super excited to be a guest stamper for the Taylored Expressions Sketch Crew today for the TE Sketch Challenge 145, shown here.
For today's card, I chose "Justin" from the Taylored Expressions Moka Collection. These stamps are too cute, but this Justin went beyond cute. Perhaps I am a bit partial with four young girls in my house who happen to love the real Justin!
I colored the image with copics and cut it out. I used designer paper instead of white for the sentiment panels, following the sketch design. The side panel is embossed with Swiss Dots and I added a grosgrain ribbon and bow with some dangling stars. I wasn't sure about the bow since this is obviously a masculine card, but I do like the way it turned out. I added an epoxy button to the banner panel as well. The background is a simple plaid.
Thanks for stopping by today! Stop by the Taylored Expressions blog to see how you can join in the challenge too! In the meantime, be sure to visit the Sketch Team's blogs to see their wonderful creations with this sketch:
