Freshly Made Sketches: Llama Fun

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Judy.

I'm not sure what got into me with this one.  I had a nice, respectable circle-like element on my desk all ready to go - actually an apple die-cut but close enough.  Then I saw a Zulily ad with a llama coffee mug (I think) and a really close up llama looking at it.  I was inspired!  And my circle became a llama!!

This is such a fun die set. It's a little bit like playing with paper dolls with all of the options to dress him up!  I took my colors from the paper but avoided the pink since I think this might eventually be a birthday card for my oldest son (if I remember it when his birthday rolls around again).  He's not a huge tequila fan but he is a college student and has over-imbibed (once or twice anyway!!)  I used a sentiment for the inside from the same stamp set - "Hope your birthday is a whole llama fun".  I thought about using "Happy birthday party animal" but I didn't want to give him any ideas!!

I've loved this guy since he was released in February but haven't had a chance to use him.  The rest of Taylored Expressions design team came up with amazing examples but you have to check out this particular card by Jill Hawkins.  I fell in love with him in his sombrero.  FYI the sombrero is actually from a different set - but what a perfect fit!!

I hope to see you playing along with us this week!
