It only takes a SPARK to get a fire going...

Hi all-

I was thrilled to get my new Paper Smooches stamps in the mail yesterday and was inspired to make another card for the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge.  (On a side note, I ordered the stamps on Saturday and they were waiting for me when I got home from work on Monday- that is what I cal1 super speedy shipping (and I live in Ohio!)


Anyhoo, in an earlier post, I shared the spark photo and it's so darling that I wanted to share it again, just because, so here you go!


Here is my card.  I used the little chick from My Peeps coupled with a sentiment from Chit Chat to create this CAS card.


I stamped the bird and sentiment in Versamark on hot pink cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder.  I matted the pink cardstock on green and tied a little black and white gingham ribbon finished off with a pink button in the center.  The colored cardstock was then adhered to a white card base.

Here's a close up of the little chick. I added a little gem for the chick's eye.


Hope you like my take on the SPARKS challenge.  Thanks for stopping by!

Katie

This is so cute. I love that little bird. I think I ordered that sentiment set as well, on Sunday. That means I should be getting a package tomorrow, I hope.
