Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge and more

Today marks a new Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge, March 8-21. 

I wanted to stay with the white wreath design so I cut a shape with my Cricut Expressions.  This was mounted on a kraft colored piece of cardstock to match the inspiration piece. 

I liked the little glimpses of pastel colors peeking out and since Easter is coming soon, I added a bunny to the wreath.  I kept my coloring very simple with just one shade of pink Copic marker and then added glitter pastel brads to the middles of the flowers.

I took this opportunity to share another card with you that features some Paper Smooches stamps. 


The little golf cart is so cute and so fitting for a card for a man, especially dad.  I cut a circle from white cardstock and embossed it with a dot embossing folder.  I used the reverse side of the embossed piece because I thought it looked like a golf ball.  The blue shape is cut with a Spellbinder Nestabilities.
I hand cut my little row of grass and the sentiment is also by Paper Smooches.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
