PaperSmooches Sparks: You Are Appreciated!



It's Monday! How did your NCAA brackets hold up over the weekend?  We all do brackets at our house...it is pretty fun to chat about who is doing well and who isn't doing so well!  I love NCAA basketball.

Now, back to the reason for my post!  It's time for another PaperSmooches Sparks Challenge.  We have a fun inspiration photo for you below.

I was inspired by the canvas in the frame and used a touch of burlap for my card. I paper pieced flowers from the Daisies & Paisleys set and added a sentiment from Word Salad.  I love the simplicity of the card with a touch of texture.

Please come play along and be sure to stop by the other design team members blogs.  I'm sure you'll be inspired!
