[8.23.15] paper smooches SPARKS challenge

Paper Smooches SPARKS

{5.29.2012} hugs

Check out the new SPARKS challenge from Paper Smooches.  We are playing with a designer draft sketch this week.  One of my favorite challenges to play.  Sketches always stretch my creativity.

Ok, so, I seriously shrunk down that sketch!  Ha.  I actually used it as my main element instead of the entire card.  Is that allowed?  I’m not sure, but that totally happened.

I was so excited when Best Buds arrived.  I couldn’t wait to ink that pretty banner stamp up.  I colored it with Copic markers, added a little white gel pen and then popped it up with some little paper ribbons hanging down.

Link up your project at the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog by Saturday, 11:59pm PST.
