Paper Smooches SPARKS - Our LAST Challenge!

Hello there! Today I am here with a card for the LAST Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge.  This makes me so sad, but I know that when the  brand new challenge kicks off on November 1st, it's sure to be spectacular!  I am so thankful to have been given the opportunity to be part of the very first SPARKS team in 2011, and part of the final SPARKS team in 2015.  I  have loved every minute!

This week is Designer Drafts week and here is our sketch:

To start my card, I embossed tiny dots on a white card base with an embossing folder.  Then I diecut the largest tag from the Gift Tags dies four times out of white card stock.  I laid out my tags according to the sketch and stamped paint stripes from the Positive Strokes Two stamp set on each tag.  I used the Stitched Flourishes dies to add flight trails to a few tags, and then diecut white butterflies using the Butterfly Duet die set.  I inked the top of each butterfly to coordinate with the paint stripes and popped them up on each tag with foam tape.  I stamped a sentiment from Spreading Sunshine in the bottom left tag, and then popped all of the tags up on the card base with foam tape.  To finish things off, I added a scattering of sequins.

I'll Never Forget Your Kindness
