Fun With Paper Smooches!

Hi there! Today I'm sharing a couple of cards I made for the most recent SPARKS Challenge over at Paper Smooches!!! Here's the DARLING inspiration photo:

Here's card #1 using Chubby Chums (Paper Smooches):

I LOVE that ADORABLE little birdie and couldn't resist paper piecing her in the challenge colors! The banner was created using the Banner Builder Collection Dies from Papertrey Ink, some fun patterned paper, and letters from Smitty's ABCs (Lawn Fawn). Here's a closer look:

Here's card #2 using Perpetual Bliss (Paper Smooches) and a tiny piece of one of the sentiments from Surf and Turf (Paper Smooches):

I ruffled my ribbon to capture the ruffles in the inspiration photo. Super easy---just lay down a strip of adhesive (I used Scor-Tape). Then, starting at the left edge, stick down bits of the ribbon making loops in between! The buttons were added to the clothespin at the last minute----just felt like it needed a "little something"...what do you think????

Here's a close-up:

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope your week is off to a FABULOUS start! The SPARKS Challenge ends tomorrow, so there's still time to play along! Click HERE for all of the deets!!!
