Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge {3.8-3.21} post 3

Hello, friends:}

Today we start another photo inspired challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog. 
This photo made me think of SPRING! For my first card, I was inspired by the flowers and wreath. I search through my Paper Smooches stamps and found some that matched! I used flowers from the Friendly Flowers set for my design. The sentiment is from my new Eco-Friendly set. LOVE the simplicity of this card! And I think those flowers match PERFECTLY! 
Each flower was stamped with Pumice Stone ink--I stamped it once on scrap paper to get a softer ink look.
I also tried to make the flowers look like some in the inspirational photo. I traced the flowers with a Sharpie to match the ones that had stitching...and I used gems and pearls for fun center embellies:)

For my second card...I was inspired by the white and soft pastel colors. I went a different route with this card. I decided to create a "fun/cute/clean/graphic" styled card! LOL! I stamped the sentiment with my Paper Smooches Alpha Dots set. **I also used a clear glaze pen over the ink so that it popped. The band-aid is from The Kismet Collection, Healthy Vibes. And the papers are from my new favorite paper pad-- Follow Your Heart: Be Happy, My Mind's Eye {available at the Ribbon Carousel}. LOOOOOOOOVE this card! 
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 March 21st. I cannot wait to see what you make--I just LOOOOOVE my Paper Smooches stamps!!! And have you seen the NEW stamps and goodies--head over HERE!! LOVE:)

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}

What great cards Savannah! You've represented the photo so well. And who wouldn't love a polka dot heart band aid!!

Great cards! I really like that second one - the paper kind of reminds of medical chart paper, so it's just perfect, and I LOVE that glossy pieced heart!

Both of your cards are so adorable, I think I might need the stamp pad you used on the first one, what a super cute use of that SPARKS challenge.

You did a spot-on job with the flower card, being perfectly inspired by that flower wreath.

And on the AHdorable band aid card, I like how you used two different colored inks for the sentiment.
