PaperSmooches Sparks: You Are Appreciated!

Hello there...Happy Monday!  I have to say I'm starting the week off a bit exhausted.  Show Choir Nationals were absolutely awesome and we ended the weekend by attending a wedding on Sunday night.  So...I'm a bit tired as I start off a new week.  But no complaints, lots of fabulous celebrations happened and I was thrilled to be a part of it all.


Now, back to business!  It's time for another PaperSmooches Sparks Challenge. This week is our designer drafts where we're inspired by a sketch.  I broke out some of my newer PaperSmooches dies that I have yet to use and stamped them with the coordinating stamps from Leafy Greens.  I inked them up with three different color distress inks and added some MME enamel dots to the middle of them.

I finished the card off my adding a little stitching around the edges of the patterned paper and stamping the sentiment from Word Salad.  Hope you like the end result and that your week gets off to a fabulous start!  Be sure to pop over to the PaperSmooches Blog and check out the designs by all the fabulous DT members.
