New Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge

 Today is the day...
 A new Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge starts 
December 1st through December 15
 This is how I decided to interpret the inspiration piece.  I loved the filigree look of some of the pieces so I cut a piece using my Art Philosophy Close to My Heart Cricut cartridge. 
I picked up the vase of yellow flowers by stamping this cut flower stamp by Paper Smooches.  If you are familiar with this set of stamps, you will know that the flower comes with a smiley face in the middle. I didn't want my card to be quite that playful, so I but a piece of white paper to go in the middle of the flower and I colored that with Copic markers as well as coloring the flower with the markers.  The leaves are in this set too, I just cut each one out.
Thanks for visiting and be sure to play along for prizes, Linda (lbpost)
