Lantern Love

Happy Superbowl weekend! I'm celebrating right now by watching the Eukanuba AKC dog show :) I usually just watch to wait for the toy group to show. They never give any air time to our little boy, though, the papillon. Poor thing

As always, I love my Paper Smooches Sparks challenges!

I knew exactly which paper I was going to use. A blue and green striped paper from DCWV Citrus Stack.

I used the brown telephone poles to mimic the paper flower stems. I paper pieced the lantern stamps and added little cut hearts, all attached to a blue stripey twine. The stamp sets used are Paper Smooches "Hangs Ups" and "Sentiment Sampler". This card was made for a good friend who just got engaged! And wouldn't ya believe it, I forgot this card at home when we left for her party. I'm too young to be losing my memory!

I hope you'll join in the Sparks challenge, it is one I always look forward to playing :)

  3. So cute!!! Perfect take on the challenge - love the alternating blue and green letters too! My latest Paper Smooches stamp set is with my "lost in the mail" order :( I love to watch dog shows - but I like the herding group best - esp. the Corgis w/ no tails!! Have a great rest of your weekend!!
