Sparks Hello


Happy Saturday! It's been a gorgeous day here - sunny but cool and dry. Atticus has really enjoyed it as we took him for a swim, played ball and went for a walk. Now he's totally crashed out on his bed paddling his paws and dreaming doggie dreams - probably about those chickens he didn't manage to catch on his walk!  LOL! 

Anyway, on to my card which is for the Paper Smooches Picture Perfect challenge and also for the Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp.  I was inspired by the colors, the colour block bedding, the white bird on the wooden dresser and the studs on the headboard.  It turned out as quite a masculine card and I like the graphicness of it.  

Now I'm off to hit the shower.  Tomorrow is Luis' birthday and also my mom's birthday so we're going to dinner tonight with some family.  Next Sunday is my brother's birthday and my goddaughter's Christening and at the end of the month is my dear friend Louise's birthday.  A very busy month!  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Bird from Folkal Points, Speech bubble from He Said, She Said, Hello from Word Salad, Hip To Be Square) Paper Smooches
Ink:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Seafoam White) Ranger
Impression Plate:  (Woodgrain) Papertrey Ink

Oh MAN ... LOVE, LOVE the little white bird on the orange!!! FANtastic!! The shiny silver is perfect on this graphic card. Lots of birthdays this month ... good thing you're a card-maker : )

Love this. That color is so masculine and happy at the same time, and your layout is great.

Love the touch of texture and the layout Jen! The touch of bling is perfect. Thanks so much for playing with us at PaperSmooches Sparks!

This so caught my eye, Jen, wonderful colour blocking, lots of texture and the white birdie on the orange is so crisp and perfect ... white ink/embossing on anything doesn't seem to work so well for me ... more practice needed I think! Anita :)

This is a winner - you have absolutely PERFECTLY caught the feel of the inspiration, while making a card that also stands on its own. Well done!

I love the color blocking on your card! And you noticed those silver upholstery things on the headboard! I didn't really catch those until after I posted my card! Great interpretation!
