Today I’m sharing a card I made for this week’s Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge. The challenge is to create a project using the inspiration photo. Below is my take on the picture. The elements that jumped out at me were the little flags, the shape of the spring form cake pan and the aqua pool water in the background. I used the super fun Qwick Qwips stamp set for my sentiment. I also used the Debonair stamp set to make the houndstooth pennants and bright red flowers. I like the idea that I could use this design over and over again for different occasions by just switching out the sentiment at the top.
(Just in case you’re wondering . . . I used a very high-tech device to create the semi-circle negative shape! Nope, not my Silhouette Cameo, although that would have been fun. I just traced the edge of a small plate to get the curve. Then I cut the square into 2 pieces and trimmed the straight edges to get the gap.) Tomorrow I will be posting a card I made using my Silhouette Cameo.
I hope you’ll join us this week—hop on over to the Sparks Blog and check out the details! Please don’t forget to visit the ladies on Team 2, I’m sure they’d love to hear from you!!!
