Yeah, it is time for another SPARKS challenge. I am so glad Kim started these, I am always up for a challenge of some kind.
This is the newest inspiration piece. Be sure to check out Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge page for all of the details. This runs from November 17th to November 30th and there are prizes to be won!
Here is my take on the challenge. I was inspired by the colors but also the placement of the elements in the photo. I knew I wanted a wonderful turquoise background and I knew that I needed at least one larger size bright green piece. I decided to go with snowflakes in rather unconventional colors because I really wanted to be able to have my card be winter/Christmas in theme and I wanted to use this cutie of a snowman. I just received this cute set from Paper Smooches and I want to use it a whole lot during the season.
Since I wanted snowflakes, I knew exactly where to go to get a variety of sizes. I pulled out my Art Philosophy Close to My Heart Cricut cartridge. This cartridge includes several snowflake shapes so I was set. If you notice, my little snowman has some Aleene's Paper Glaze added to his little scarf for some additional interest.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
