Paper Smooches SPARKS August 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 "Sizzle"
Cocoa, Coral, Kraft, Yellow

I'm not sure how to describe my card today.... it was created for some a friend of ours. Our bass player in the worship band lost his wife to cancer last week. It's soooo sad but I know exactly where she is right now- looking into the face of Jesus! Being a believer, I know that when I die, I will be in Heaven with Jesus! And my family can rest assured that I will not be in pain anymore (if I die from cancer/etc.).... I will be dancing in Heaven's streets praising the Lord:)  So needless to say, this card means so much to me.
For my design, I layered several Crate Papers (Paper Heart collection) with some random washi tapes (including gold and coral) and splattered nail polish (I had to use what was on hand! LOL!)! I stapled on a bundle of thread and attached two glittered feathers at the end. ****NOTE: I have got to give a HUGE shout out to Heather for sharing that this feather is found in the Paper Smooches Calico set! It's actually a LEAF! I am hitting my head because I didn't see that! I've been looking forEVER for a feather stamp that I love.... and now I've found it! THANKSHeather  I also stamped some chevrons from the PS Borderlicious set, as well as a sentiment from the Spiritual Sampler set. I really do love this card-- it's just soooooo hard to give to our friend :(

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 August 25th. 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:}

So much coolness going on, on this card! And at the same time, sets a beautiful tone for its purpose. It will be so hard to give, but it will be so appreciated.
