Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge - April Week #3

***This is my second post of the day -- Click Here to view my post for Butterfly Reflections, Ink Blog***

Hello Everyone.  I'm back again this week for the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge! 

This week is all about "Anything Goes".  Yes, Anything Goes is very popular as you can create any type of just need to feature Paper Smooches products on your creation.  

For today's card, I was totally drawing inspiration from a new baby wipes container that I picked up at Walmart recently.  (I keep this container on my craft desk for quick cleaning of my stamps or other messes). 

 When I saw it, all I could think about was Paper Smooches Bordelicious Stamp set and Tim Holtz Distress Ink that's exactly what I did :) 

Here is how my card turned out!

 The first think I did was stamp different borders from the Borderlicious stamp set in Versamark ink and white heat embossed them.

Once I let it cool down for a minute or two, I used my Mini Ink blending tools and some Tim Holtz Distress Ink and blended in the back ground.  

Since there was so much blue involved, I decided to turn this into a masculine card.  I created this card while crafting with my dear friend (and the Paper Smooches Design Team Coordinator) Savannah from Savannah Land 2 and she suggested using the Quotable Dies -- which was genius I might add.  But I couldn't figure out how I wanted them to be layered out on the card.  Again, Savannah had a genius idea to have them coming from the corners of the card!  ((Now why couldn't I think of that?!?! :p ))

I really love how this card turned out and how the background totally turned out like the wipes container!  

Be sure to join in on the fun of Anything Goes over on the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge Blog  and check out the other incredible creations by the design team! 

Hope to see you back here real soon!
