Paper Smooches SPARKS July 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:

I was thinking of doing a sunset design with inks and a black silhouette... but then I was inspired by a combo of neon and vellum. I decided to use the "sun" as my inspiration for the background with the "silhouette" being the sentiment. I love how this card turned out-- I have to admit that it took two tries because I messed up the sentiment on the vellum the first time. I'll have to see if I can use it for another creation later! 

This card is super simple and uses just a few items: neon papers, vellum, and the Paper Smooches Thanks Word, Power Rays, and Hot Spots SM1 dies, along with the PS Eco Friendly stamp set. 
Not sure if you can see it but the rays come off the card on the right side-- love that design effect with vellum!

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 28th. 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:}

LOVE this card - bright, cheery, eye-catching, stunning and all-around gorgeous! Talk about a day-brightening, smile-making start to my Monday, even though we're leaving Bend (sighh...love Bend!). My PS order arrived while we were here, and it included the ray die. Excited to give it a try - all the inspiration to order it is all due to you and your creativity! Thank you!! Once again- have a super Monday!!
