thanks berry much CFC14 and Sparks Challenge

Woohoo for the weekend! Did you all see my adorable fur baby that just got added to our family? Please help welcome him in our lives :)

Yesterday a new Sparks challenge over at Paper Smooches was posted! I didn't even know this challenge existed, but there are amazing prizes to be won

I was also excited about the CAS-ual Fridays challenge, which is to use a glue-dot to adhere glitter so I was excited to try that!

PS Sparks August challenge and CAS-ual Fridays #14 Challenge
When I saw the requirements for of these challenges I knew it would be a great fit to do together.  For the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge I was inspired by the inspiration photo which had some pretty fushias, pinks, a brown fence, and also some pretty white and silver bling! With the CFC challenge to use glittered-up Glue Dots, I knew I needed to add them to this stamp and they would fit perfectly :)

Material Deets:
paper smooches free digi stamp for the grapes
paper smooches free digi stamp "thanks" and "i love you berry much" that I combined to say "thanks berry much"
large 3-d Glue Dots
martha stewart fine silver glitter
colored pencils for the grapes
black marker to add little 'grape' dots to the letters
dollar ribbon
dcwv paper from Safari Kids solid stack.

I am entering this card in these challenges...

I hope to see you play along!

{this card will soon be posted in my etsy shop!}
