Thx


I think I've stared at the inspiration photo for the PaperSmooches Spark Challenge for the entire two weeks it has been out there trying to decide what I wanted to make.  I was in awe over Karen's card here...and I love how she always colors with kraft.  So gorgeous.  My card is no where near as stunning as hers, but I decided to try my hand at a touch of coloring.  I stamped the flowers in white and then colored them with pencils.  Added some gems and the sentiment.  To add a bit of texture, I embossed the white panel.  What do you think :)?

Hope you have a fabulous Sunday! We're off to a dear high school friends to spend the day swimming at their house.  The kids get along perfect - lots of boys will be there today - 9 boys and one girl!  I'll be sure to share a few pictures later this week.

PS Still stamps for sale here if you are interested:  Hero Arts, PaperTrey Ink and more :)
