Paper Smooches SPARKS August Trend Watch challenge

Hello, friends:}

Today we start another weekly challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!! 

The first week of the month is always a TRENDS WATCH challenge. 


This week we are inspired by the following photo:
I created a super fun card by designing my own transparency piece with the chevron image from the NEW Paper Smooches Borderlicious stamp set. I absolutely LOOOOOOOOOVE this "clear" design! I love the colors and the gold chevrons! OH MY! I also used the NEW PS Many Thanks set (I know I will be using this A TON!!!), as well as the Thanks Word die. The paper are Crate Paper-- LOVE!! LOVE it all! Honestly, I think this is my FAV card ever! 
This is also a TALL card- I believe it measures 3 1/4" x 7"! 
I tried to make the photo a bit darker so you could see the transparency-- 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 August 11th. I cannot wait to see what you make--I just LOOOOOVE my Paper Smooches stamps-- did you see the new stamp sets??? I literally just got my package of new sets and dies the other day-- LOVE x100000! 

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}
