Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge - {4/19 - 5/2} & A Thank You

It is so hard to believe that my time as a SPARKS girl has come to an end, and that this is my final project for my term. I would stay on forever if I could... I had a blast creating and you can bet that, even though I will be a design team alumni, I will still be participating right along with the rest of you! Above you can see our inspiration photo for this challenge. Perfect for summer!! :) You can find all of the details here. I chose to use the cones as my jumping off point for this card. Whenever I see argyle, I think of ice cream cones, so of course, I had to pull out my Debonair stamp set. I stamped two rows of argyle in Versamark and embossed them with clear embossing powder. The ice cream cones are from the Little Lady set. The cherry buttons are threaded with Paper Smooches Mocha Twine.

And as a thank you for this opportunity, I made this card for Kim. Paper Smooches stamps bring so much FUN to my craft table, and I am so thankful for that. Thank you Kim for allowing me to be part of such an amazing team! It is an experience I will never forget, and has been a dream come true for me!

For this card, I used the Healthy Vibes, Smarty Pants and Reflections sets as well as a sentiment from Word Salad.

That's all for now! Good luck to all of the new SPARKS team members! You are going to have SO much fun! :)

I love the ice cream - that bow! but I squeaked when I saw the colouring card. How genius to make those germs into colour splotches! I found your blog via SPARKS too, and you are so talented :)
