Paper Smooches SPARKS May Trend Watch challenge {post1}

Hello, friends:}

**After 6amEST--please click HERE or scroll up/down for my Reverse Confetti sneak peek post! 


Today we start another weekly challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!! The first week of the month is always a TRENDS WATCH challenge. 







This week we are inspired by the following photo:
The hottest trend right now-- anything and everything Nautical! So I pulled out my PS Nauticool dies and Wicked Nauticool stamp set to create my card. I also used the PS Duo Die2 and the "heart anchors" are from the PS Vegtastic and FOLKal Points stamp sets. LOOOOOOOVE how this card turned out! Papers are from the Fancy Pants Designs Trendsetter collection. I learned how to tie this knot from THIS video by Lorri. I also found inspiration from THIS card by Yainea. LOVE x1000! 
Can you tell those hearts are the anchor? LOVE it-- thanks for the idea, Yainea!
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 May 12th. I cannot wait to see what you make--I just LOOOOOVE my Paper Smooches stamps-- did you see the new stamp sets??? I cannot wait to get them in the mail and ink them up-- esp. the Retail Therapy set! ACK! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! 

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}
