Paper Smooches SPARKS July Cool Shades challenge {post1}

Hello, friends:}

**After 9am EST--please click HERE or scroll up/down for my Mama Elephant July Stampede post! **Giveaway details at bottom of that 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 "Celebration"
Grey, Navy, Red, Cream/White

I used white for my fourth color.... and I was also inspired by THIS image on Pinterest. It has been floating around the web for at least a month, and I knew as soon as I saw it that I wanted to use it for my card today! 

I used some of my FAVORITE patterned paper from the Crate Paper Paper Hearts collection. I am also SUPER sad because I accidentally cut the patterned paper too small... so now I'm out of it! BOOOOOOOO:( 

I used several Paper Smooches stamp sets including Crystal Clear, Streamers, and Circle of Honor. I also used some PS coordinating dies from the Streamers and Crystal Clear1 dies, as well as the Hot Spot Small1 die set for the stars. LOVE LOVE LOVE how this turned out! I added some Whisker Graphics Black Licorice divine twine to the blue jar. PERFECT! And you guessed it-- that's VELLUM!!! I used some of my tips and tricks from THIS Virtual Smooches video to attach the vellum to my project. LOVE
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 July 21st. I cannot wait to see what you make--I just LOOOOOVE my Paper Smooches stamps SO MUCH!

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}

Whew, what a hectic past few days - officiating at the bike race on Saturday/Sunday, then traveling to Bend Monday/Tuesday - and here we are! I'm trying my best to catch-up with my 'special people blogs' (you hold Top position, fyi!!).
LOVE this card; perfect showcase of the PS products! I'm always confused as to what to do with jar dies/stamps, and you have, once again, offered amazing inspiration! Super darling!
