A new Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge

Time for another Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge.  This one runs January 12 - January 25th.
 Do you love the red and green together and it isn't Christmas related!
 I wanted to pick up that great red/dot wall and the green tiny print, especially in the square pillows.  I picked up my 8"x8" mini pad of Sidewalks papers by October Afternoon and found the perfect papers.  I used little square punched pieces to go across the card front. 
I liked the little black table with the lamp on it and thought the little telephone stamp by Paper Smooches would go along with that.  I stamped it on plain white cardstock and matted that with a black circle since the lamp in the inspiration piece had black lines on it. 
The sentiment is a rub-on by EAD Designs and Paper Smooches.
I hope you can find some time to play along with this piece.
Gotta share a few photos taken with my Hipstamatic phone camera...
 I went down to the beach at sunset time because we were having big waves.  Someone had created this perfect, amazing sand castle so I had to take photos.
 I used one of my new black/white lens/film packages.
 And, here is one of the sunset and waves.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
