Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge - April Week #2

Hey Everyone and Happy Sunday!! 

Today is week #2 of the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge. 

This week, its all about Picture Perfect and the photo below is to be used for inspiration: 

I have to admit that I had a really tough time with this picture....not sure why?! LOL There is so much inspiration that can be taken from the colors, to the banners, to meaning that its a celebration of sorts. I guess it was just a crafters block sorta week.  But here is what I came up with below: 

I used the Pinked Circles die (my new FAVORITES!) to create the banners on the card.  

Once I and put them on the card and created the banner, I decided that it was just too plain for me.  So I looked through my stamp sets and found these polka dots in the Alphadot stamp set. (thats why they don't line up perfectly, as I was stamping the dots while trying not to get them anywhere else :D)   

Of course, I had to use my new favorite sentiment stamp set Bold Buzzwords not only for the sentiment but also some stars.  Lastly, I used my Signo White Gel Pen for some accent and Ranger Black Glitter Embossing Powder for some fun sparkly. 

Hope you guys enjoyed this card.  Be sure to head on over to Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge Blog to join in on the challenge and view the other great projects by the design team.  

I'll see you back here soon!
