Paper Smooches SPARKS Picture Perfect Card

This week begins an all new Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge!  It's Picture Perfect week, with this fun picture for inspiration!! :)

Here's my take on the challenge photo.  I just loved the super cute colorful tags, so I made my own using the tag from Qwick Qwips.  I added orange twine to the sentiment tag and fussy cut hearts and the coffee to-go cup from the Hot Concoctions set.  Super fun and cheery!  Love it! :)  I had to add glossy accents to the hearts and cup lid for dimension.  

I'm so sad to say that this is my last challenge with the SPARKS Design Team.  These past seven months have just flown by and I've enjoyed every second of this amazing ride!  My fellow SPARKS designers are fabulously talented and it's been a blast working with them all, and Savannah was the most awesome DT coordinator ever, SO helpful and encouraging!!  A HUGE thank you to Kim for asking me to be a part of this dream come true experience!  I feel so blessed and thankful for this wonderful opportunity!!!  Congrats to the new team, can't wait to see your SPARKS creations!! :)

Be sure to go and check out all my fellow SPARKS DT gals.  They're sure to have some awesome creations to share!!!

Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge

Today starts a fun new sketch challenge over on the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge Blog.  This sketch is so perfect and fun!  

For my card, I used some awesome new dies from Paper Smooches to create this flower.  I used the Big Bloom dies to cut through 3 layers of sparkly tissue paper and layered them together with a brad.  I fluffed the layers to created this rose like flower.  So easy and fun!  I stamped the hexagon border from Geo-Graphics onto my kraft layer.  The sentiment is from the Salutations set.  For my little flags, I attached some silver washi tape to coordinate with my decorative brad.  I love the simplicity of this sketch, it would work for so many card styles! 

Thanks so much for checking out my card!  Be sure to visit the SPARKS Challenge blog for more info and to share your creation!  

The other SPARKS designers are sharing some fabulous creations as well!
