Paper Smooches SPARKS May Cool Shades challenge {post1}

Hello, friends:}

**After 9amEST--please click HERE or scroll up/down for my Mama Elephant highlight 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 "Nautical"
Red, Kraft, Navy, Teal

Ok... so I was trying to go REAL CAS with my card today... however, this sentiment took over 2 hours to make! I had to restamp it twice... and matching each letter from different sets was hard-- but TOTALLY worth it:) 

I used some Bazzill Basics Paper with some Fancy Pants Designs Trendsetter scrap pieces-- LOVE! Plus, I used 7 Paper Smooches stamp sets for this sentiment including Hope, Market Fresh, Spiritual Sampler, Joyful Greetings, Daisies & Paisleys, Wicked Nauticool, and Hubby and Wifey. I also used the Anchor and Wedding Shower dies. LOOOOOOOVE how this card turned out:)
I used a navy ink with teal and red papers on a kraft background. Looks simple... but you know me!! I always have to make things difficult or more complicated than it needs to be:) LOL! 

I've been wanting to use this sentiment on a card for awhile-- 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. ***This is actually the last PSS challenge for these gals. I'm so thankful that I was able to work with them-- it has been a blast! I love each of their styles and designs-- I've been blown away with each of their creations!! Please stop by their blog and let them know you love their work too!!

And don't forget to stop by the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog for more details!!!! This challenge ends May 26th. I cannot wait to see what you make--I just LOOOOOVE my Paper Smooches stamps. 

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}
