Paper Smooches SPARKS March Cool Shades challenge {post1}

Hello, friends:}

**After 9amEST--please click HERE or 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 "Fiesta" {which by the way is my favorite car ever-- my first car was an '89 Ford Festiva that I often called the Fiesta! LOL! And now they have a new version out- -LOVE IT!}:
Tangerine, Dark Orange, Lime, Lemon

I couldn't help myself for my creation-- when I see oranges and greens together, I instantly want to make a carrot card:) My friend Ashley knows that this is my FAV sentiment too! I also pulled out my best inner-Teri Anderson. I said, "What would Teri do?" I wanted to make a modern card with some embellishments.... I don't think I matched Teri's style (she is WAY CUTER than me! I don't know how she does it-- I want her talent!) but I think I channeled a bit of her creativity into it:)

I used some Simple Stories and My Mind's Eye papers for this card. I also used my new favorite cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper. I paired several stamps from the Paper Smooches  Vegtastic, Giddy Bugs, and Smoocheroos to create the sentiment, as well as the PS  die Alphawhimsy. Super fun! **NOTE:: I also used the Pint-Pint-Pint-Dash balance for these colors! LOL! I used just a tiny bit of each and a dash of the dark orange. 
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 24th. I cannot wait to see what you make--I just LOOOOOVE my Paper Smooches stamps. 

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}
