Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge!


Paper Smooches is a wonderful new stamp company with some awesome and creative stamps. Every month they have a card making challenge using their stamps called the Sparks Challenge. They give you an inspiration photo and then you use that and make a card. It reminds me of our very own Tell Me What You See Challenge! So this month I decided to play along and enter the challenge!

Here is the inspiration photo


Here is what I came up with



So with this card I started with a Nestabilities die cut and cut my card base and the white background. I embossed the edges of the white background with the same die. Then I die cut circles of different sizes fro different colored paper for the rainbow. I stamped the clouds (not paper smooches.... but still cute.) I used an embossing folder and added texture to the clouds and then smudged some silver/gray ink over the top to give it a little more dimension. Then I assembled the rainbow and ran used an embossing folder on the as well. I added those to the card and then used the the great "You're Special" Stamp. The stamp is from Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler stamp set ( Btw I Love this set! It's so versatile!) And the end result is this card!

So I hope Yall like it and wish me Luck!! The Winner wins free stamp sets!!
