Paper Smooches SPARKS Feb. Cool Shades {post1}

Hello, friends:}

**After 9amEST--please scroll up/down for my Mama Elephant highlight post! 

Today we start another weekly challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!! The third week of the month is always a Cool Shades challenge.  

This week we are inspired by the following color story "Carnival":
Chocolate, Cream, Aqua, and Cherry Red

I think that "cherry red" is more pink red, so I pulled out LOTS of Crate Paper collections to match this color story. 

I made a simple design (based off of
THIS LO) that is distressed and a bit crooked. LOVE!! I used two of my NEW PS dies {Duo Die4 and Butterflies2}. I LOVE these new dies--they are so easy to use!!! I also used my favorite PS arrow stamp {Spookalicious}, as well as sentiments from Spiritual Sampler and Happy Camper. LOVE x1000000! 
Ok-- so you might be asking why I used "white" paper?! Well, I promise you that the grid paper is more creamish in person than in this photo! And that brad is cream too! PROMISE:)
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 February 24th. I cannot wait to see what you make--I just LOOOOOVE my Paper Smooches stamps. 

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}
