Smile! Sparks Challenge

The Paper Smooches Sparks challenge right now has the best photo to play with, I had a lot of fun with this card. I created little snapshots of all the adorable tropical birdies in the 'My Peeps' set.

I immediately knew I would make little framed snapshots, that was hard to pass up!

All mini frames and the shape card were cut with my Silhouette SD
The frames are actually from a Lettering Delights Halloween tag set "Best Witches Party", and I just got the SVG to the basic shadow file for easy cuts.
I used my scoreboard to create the chair-rail and wainscot wall finish
Each frame was rubbed with Colorbox blue chalk ink, and the sentiment in seagreen chalks.
Stamped each birdie with Paper Smooches 'My Peeps' and colored with color pencils
The sentiment is Hero Arts 'smile' and attached with a glittery mini brad

I showed Matty my card and all he could say was that it was a 'Rio' card... I didn't even see it, but I have to admit, he's very right...

Cute movie, too! We just watched it a few days ago. It's hard not to fall in love with the cute little birds and monkeys :)
