I have a last minute card to post today.

I don’t usually create during the week, but I needed to get a card in the mail for a sweet friend.  For some inspiration, I looked to the Paper Smooches picture perfect SPARKS challenge for this week.

Lovely right?
Those amazing plates and the great colors inspired this card.
