Paper Smooches SPARKS Sept. 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 TREND WATCH challenge. 





This week we are inspired by the following photo:
My original design included a gold jar with some white and pink flowers... but then I thought I would step out of my comfort zone and create.... steady yourself.... I thought I would create a CAS ONE LAYER card. (GASP!!!!!) I know! I'm shocked myself. I actually completed this in less than an hour-- I hope that doesn't make you fall over or fall out of your chair!  I really wasn't trying to shock you today:)

Like I said, this is a one layer card... I used the flower images from the Paper Smooches Crystal Clear and Reflections stamp sets. The sentiment is from the PS Many Thanks set (I love love love this set!)!!! I love how this turned out-- esp. the bottom patterned paper! That piece was a debate between Trav and myself. He thought I should use just cardstock... normally I listen to him... but this time, I crinkled my nose and said, "I like lots of design. So I'm using patterned paper!" LOL! I hope he still likes it;) We also had a debate about how many gems to use.... I wanted to use just one more (odd numbers- pleasing to the eye).... but I didn't. So he won:)
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 September 8th. 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:}

Wait, what? A one-layer card? It's so gorgeous, Sav! And I think you each won the right debate: the two gems look just right, and the patterned paper adds a great touch. :)
