PaperSmooches: Picture Perfect


Hello there and welcome to this week's PaperSmooches Sparks challenge.  I went for a very simple part of the inspiration and decided to pull the pinks and blues as well as the polka dots.  

My card features the Hope Dies. I layered the die in three colors and added a touch of patterned paper and enamel elements to finish off the card.  When I made this card a couple of weeks ago, it was going into my stash, but I didn't have a particular person in mind to send it to.  Unfortunately, a co-worker of mine was recently diagnosed a second time with cancer. This card is going to her with lots of prayers continuing that she can make a full recovery.

Please be sure to stop by the other design team members blogs to check out their fabulous creations.

And of course, we'd love to see you play along. You'll have until Saturday at 11:59 PST to join along.   Hop on over to the PaperSmooches Sparks blog to play along with us!
