Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge

Today marks a new Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge.
 This is the photo of the inspiration piece.
 I liked the striped pattern and that the stems were long and lean.  I used to sit and create my own patterned paper with markers, a ruler and stripes so I thought this was a good time to pull out that technique.  My card is also long and skinny to match the long stems.  The thing about drawing your own lines is you can pick the colors.  The sentiment is from a set of Paper Smooches stamps. 
The dots are from the Gently Seasoned stamp set. 
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
