SPARKS Challenge: Live in Color

Hello friends!

I hope you are having a lovely start to the week.  I have been enjoying an extended long weekend with the family and it's been a busy one, but I found a couple minutes today to accomplish two things: (1) play along with this week's Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge and (2) use Silhouette Portrait for the very first time (!).  The convergence of those two items resulted in this:

I used the Silhouette to die cut the view finder disc and matted small swatches of cardstock behind each window.  I stamped a heart from Spiffy Scooters on each colored window and added an arrow from Teen Scene to the disc.

The sentiment is from Spring Fling. Some gray and white polka dot patterned paper and a bit of black and white twine finished off the card. 

Here is this week's inspiration photo:

You have until June 2 to link up your take and play along!

Well that's it for me today!  Have a good one!
