Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge- June DESIGNER DRAFTS

Hello, friends:}

Today we start another weekly challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!! The second week of the month is always a DESIGNER DRAFT challenge. 




This week we are inspired by the sketches: 
Well....I made two cards because I wasn't sure my first card would match the sketch that well! **You know how I always switch up the sketches! LOL!

For my first card (also featured on the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog), I used some of my new My Mind's Eye On the Sunny Side papers {available HERE from the RC} along with my Paper Smooches Sugar Rush stamp set. I looooooove how this turned out! I added a bit of divine twine {available HERE} and some red gems for accents. Super fun card! **This card FOLLOWED the sketch:)
For my second card....I used the sketch as a starting point for my design. I LOVE this card--I LOVE those sentiments down the left side {Paper Smooches Vegtastic, FOLKal Points, Surf & Turf, My Peeps, Word Salad, Good Gab}!!! I also love those Crate Papers {available HERE from the RC}. SOOOOOO pretty! The bird and sentiment are from the Paper Smooches Forest Whimsy stamp set. LOVE those brads --homemade and gems! LOVE:) LOVE this card sooooooo much! **This card DID NOT follow the sketch well. 
A close-up of the sketch, what I changed, and my card....I think it works:) LOVE it! 
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 June 17th. I cannot wait to see what you make--I just LOOOOOVE my Paper Smooches stamps!!!

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}

Your first card is so sweet (pun intended). Love the mix of papers and the cute little popsicles. I'm laughing about how you switched up the sketch--I would totally do that! I love all the sentiments down the side. Super clever!

Yummy card! I love the cheery colors and the patterned papers you used are perfect-especially the popsicle print! Erica

First, what yummy popsicles! I love the colors you picked.

Then, the second card really had me with that pink floral button! Love how you layered all your elements, and stacked those sentiments.
