Happy Everything Card

Howdy Folks! 

Hope you're enjoying Valentine's Day!  I just wanted to pop in and share my entry into this week's Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge, which is a designer drafts challenge. 

Below is the sketch to inspire our cards:  

I found this sketch to be a little tough, but here's what I came up with: 

I used the new Paper Smooches stamp set "Leafy Greens" for the background panel.  It's such a pretty set!  I was so happy to have won it from the last design team blog hop :)  It even has a few matching dies, but those will have to be on my wish-list for now!  I stamped the images in wisteria wonder (SU), baja breeze (SU), and soft granite (HA) ink.  I then layered some acetate with a pretty white chevron pattern over the panel.  The sentiment (Simply Said- also from Paper Smooches) was stamped on vellum and embossed in black.  

I added a few rhinestones and some silver striped washi for fun.  Lastly, I mounted the panel on some kraft cardstock, which I thought looked nice with the soft color palette. 

Thanks so much for visiting today!  Hope to see you again soon!
