Paper Smooches SPARKS July Designer Drafts challenge {post1}

Hello, friends:}

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

Today we start another weekly challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!! The second week of the month is always a DESIGNER DRAFT challenge. 




This week we are inspired by the following sketch:
Ok... so the PSS DT created card that didn't include the jar... so I went ahead and followed this sketch 99%!!!!!!! I used a jar, straws, and the such! HOOOOOORAY! ***NOTE: The sentiment was created by Trav-- I asked him what this card should say and he came up with this sentiment. I have to admit that I looked at him with big eyes-- this sentiment was SUPER hard to stamp (esp. since I had to mask every word)! And I need to give credit to my friend, Laurie. She stopped by while I was making this card, and she prayed me through it! She said she learned a lot about masking... probably more than she wanted to know:) THANK YOU, Trav and Laurie

I used some of my favorite papers by Fancy Pants Designs {The Good Life} for this card. I looooooove those polka dots! This is a fairly simple card (minus the masking for the sentiment)... I did use 8 stamp sets for this card and some dies! I inked up the Paper Smooches Word Up, Spiffy Scooters, Pretty Phrases *this stamp set was used to make several words in that sentiment-- LOVE!, Swanky Snowdudes, Green Thumb, Freezy Fellas, FOLKal Points, and Crystal Clear stamp sets. I also used my new Crystal Clear1 dies for that jar-- which I'm super excited about because I stamped the "Ball" sentiment on the vellum with Versamark ink and then used the stem of one of the plants for the line under the sentiment! Laurie and I looked a Ball jar in my studio for that inspiration! LOVE LOVE LOVE
Trav says he loves the size of this card-- it's def. tall! 
Not sure if you can see it-- but here are two close-ups of the Versamarked sentiment and line:)
That's it for me today--but be sure to stop by the other Paper Smooches SPARKS DT members' blogs, get inspired, and leave them some love

Such a cute card. The tall cards are becoming a trend I think. Love what you did with the jar. I just received my jar dies and I ordered the stamp so I should get it in a few days. Super excited.
