SPARKS Challenge: Birthday Castle in the Clouds

Hi friends,

I am playing along with this week's Paper Smooches SPARKs Challenge.  I have birthdays on the brain this week as my little princess, Sophie turned 6 years old.  Using the color inspiration from this week's challenge, I used Royal Cuteness and Birthday Sampler to create a little Birthday Castle in the Clouds.

I trimmed a piece of teal polka dot paper and adhere it to a card base made from light gray cardstock. Next, I die cut a flag from purple cardstock and adhered it to the patterned paper.  I die cut some clouds from light and dark gray cardstock. I stamped the sentiment on the light gray cloud and adhered all the clouds to the card.


I stamped the castle on light gray cardstock, colored it with markers and added some stickles for a little sparkle and shine.  This is the first time the I have used Paper Smooches open format dies and I love them!!  It is so much easier to stamp then die cut. I adhered the castle with a bit of foam tape and added some lime green enamel dots as a finishing touch.

Here is a look at this week's colors, Fresh Fall:

Well that's all for me today!  
Thanks for stopping by!
