Paper Smooches SPARKS March Designer Drafts challenge

Hello, friends:}

**Please note that I am on vacation and will not make comments or videos public until I return on March 30th. Thanks for your understanding!!! And Thanks so much for stopping by!

Today we start another weekly challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!! This week we are sharing a DESIGNER DRAFT challenge. 

This week we are inspired by the following sketch:

**Sentiments can be placed anywhere on the sketch.

Ok.... I can't apologize enough for NOT following the sketch closer! I have guess that I used 60% of this sketch! ACK! I can't give excuses--- but it's 4am as I write this post....so maybe it was because I was tired.... late because I ran out of time (this Israel trip really kicked this procrastinator's butt! LOL!), and maybe because I was a rebel and really struggled with this design! It could be any of those excuses:)

That being said... I loooooooooooove this card! I really do! LOVE the papers which are by American Crafts Polka Dot Party (and the Dear Lizzy project life coordinating pack). I used just a few Paper Smooches stamps including Just a Note and the Geobasics sets. I also die cut using the PS Hearts and Hello Words dies! LOVE LOVE LOVE! I used a technique shared in the online Clean and Simple 3 class (Inlaid Die Cutting). LOVE! ***However, this is not a CAS card! LOL! Too much detail:)

Soooooo..... now that you've seen my card..... here's how I followed the sketch: 

  1. I used a journal card that had 2 sections for the center panel.
  2. I used the chevrons instead of banners... and I only used one row.
  3. I used a camera and a brad with hemp cord as my 2 banners on the top. 
60%? Maybe less?!?!?! Either way-- I was inspired by this sketch! LOL! 

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

And don't forget to stop by the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog for more details!!!! This challenge ends March 29th. I cannot wait to see what you make!!! 

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}

Sav, I'm so behind on commenting, so time to catch up! Your card is, as always, so unique and fresh. The camera is adorable, and pairs wonderfully with all the other fabulous details you've selected. You, my friend, have such an eye for design! Love this x a zillion! Hugs~c
