Paper Smooches SPARKS June Picture Perfect challenge

Hello, friends:}
Today we start another weekly challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!! The fourth week of the month is always a Picture Perfect challenge.  







This week we are inspired by the following picture:

Ok-- so I was a bit stumped by this photo. At first I only saw the color story-- browns and I knew I couldn't do just a color story card. Picture Perfect challenges have you get inspired by the photo... so I looked again. I saw the word "flesh" as the color name. I instantly thought of a world with multiple colored hands with the sentiment "We are ONE". But I didn't have time to create this design... so then I looked again and saw crayons. And that inspired me to make something bright because crayons color the world:)
This is supposed to be an "angled" shot-- wow! I'm really doing a bad job at photos this month! 
**NOTE to TRAV-- I need a new camera:)

This was a very simple card that I created because I wanted to make sure the colors popped. I really wanted the sentiment "Wishing You" on top of the colored panel to pop but it's really hard to see:( I used only ONE set {Paper Smooches Chart Toppers} for this card!! LOOOOOOOVE

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 30th. I cannot wait to see what you make--I actually can't wait to see what you are inspired by in this photo!!

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}
