Paper Smooches SPARKS Designer Drafts challenge

Hello, friends:}

Today we start another weekly challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!! The second week of the month is always a DESIGNER DRAFT challenge. 

This week we are inspired by the following sketches: 
OH MY! I love love love my card!! I actually hated it at first.... but then I looked at it again... LOVE

I was inspired by:

  • the Paper Smooches SPARKS sketch-- of course;)
  • THIS color story by Shanna on the Studio Calico blog
  • all of my crafty friends that mist and spray their papers **this was my FIRST time misting/dripping ANYTHING!!! 

I used some basic cardstock and a neon yellow spray painted piece of paper with a strip of Basic Grey's Kneehighs patterned paper along with a brad by My Mind's Eye. I used several Paper Smooches stamp sets including Falling For You, My Guy, Slang Gang, as well as the PS Hot Spots Sm Set1 dies. LOOOOOOOOOOVE how this turned out!! **NOTE: I probably didn't follow the sketch as closely as I wanted to. I used the horizontal sketch but made it taller. The misting/dripping was added at the end because I forgot the "polka dots".... 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 May 19th. I cannot wait to see what you make!!! 

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}

ps... just in case you like to get a "head start" on challenges, we now share the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge photos on the Paper Smooches blog on SUNDAYS!!! That's one day early!!! Be sure to check it out HERE!!
