{11.26.2012} paper smooches picture perfect

Check out the new SPARKS challenge from Paper Smooches!

The patterns were the main inspiration for this card.  I mimicked the chevron curtains in the background paper and the damask-like chair in the paper for the buildings.  Plus the great colors in the photo.  I thought it would be a fun New Year’s card or maybe a birthday card.  I love the building from Metropolis, I always grab for it first and think, I better use something else that hasn’t seen ink yet.  But not this time!  What do you think of the patterned building?  Wouldn’t you want to live there?  Ha.

Check out the other girls sharing their SPARKS cards this week.
