Paper Smooches SPARKS Jan. Picture Perfect challenge

Hello, friends:}
Today we start another weekly challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!! This week is a Picture Perfect challenge.  

This week we are inspired by the following picture:

So I found lots of things to be inspired by from this photo:

  1. Cake- why does one have a cake? To celebrate... to celebrate a baby, wedding, birthday!
  2. The flowers
  3. Polka dots
  4. Colors- well... just the yellow/dots
So from all of that... I created the following card for our cousin's Grandma who is turning 90 this month! I used some Crate Paper Flea Market papers (inspired by the photo- flowers and polka dots) along with a random yellow pom pom ribbon that I had in my drawer (also inspired by the polka dots and yellow from the photo)! I die cut a banner using the Paper Smooches Flag Tag dies and stamped a sentiment from the PS Woofers & Tweeters set. I also stamped the number 90 tone-on-tone using Memento Angel Pink inks and the PS Digits set. I added a birdie paper clip and gold floss... and I was done! EASY:) OH! And I added some splatters using the Imagine Crafts Angel Pink Fireworks spray- LOVE! I also think this is the perfect entry for the Ribbon Carousel #89 challenge (Love/Birthday/Chicken Soup)! FAB

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 January 18th. I cannot wait to see what you make--I actually can't wait to see what you are inspired by in this photo!!

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}
