Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge {12.29- 1.11}

Hello, friends:} 



Today we start another photo inspired challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog. 

I just love this inspirational photo/sentiment! I decided to make two cards for this week's challenge. For my first card....I was inspired by the rainbow colors. I know, I know--I'm always trying to think outside the box:) I used some of my old Jillibean Soup {Sesame Oil} and Echo Park {Sunshine} papers for the background. I added some sunshine rays using my Sassafras Marmalade paper. I stamped the  clouds from the Paper Smooches Forest Whimsy set. The sun and his glasses are from the PS Sunny Side Up set. I added the sentiment from the PS Word Salad set. Super fun--LOVE that sun and his grin!!! 
This picture shows the card and dimension better:)

For my second card...I was inspired by the quote. I thought it would be different to make a card that "encouraged". The sentiment is stamped using the PS Alpha Dots stamp set. Hope is a stamp from the PS Hope set. I used some of my new papers from Crate Paper. And that ribbon--SO LUSH! It's available HERE from The Ribbon Carousel. LOVE!!!
I know you can't really tell in these photos, but it was stamped in hot pink and then I used a glaze pen over it. It looks so pretty in person! OY! 

That's it for me today--but be sure to stop by the other Paper Smooches SPARKS DT members' blogs and leave them some love

And don't forget to stop by the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog for more details. This challenge ends January 11th. I cannot wait to see what you make!!!

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}
