PS SPARKS - Flowers

Hello! It's time for this weeks new Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge - here is what I made this week:

It is the first week of the month, so that means it is a Trend Watch Challenge:

And here is the inspiration piece:

Isn't it beautiful?!?!?  I loved the soft and dreamy color scheme, and tried to capture that in my card. I used two PS stamp sets, Calico for the flowers and leaves, and Salutations for my sentiment.

I stamped my flowers and leaves using several different Versamagic Inks - love how well they layer together! The sentiment was stamped with MFT kraft ink, and I added a sprinkling of self adhesive pearls. Finished off with a bit of washi, a tiny piece of Tim Holtz film strip, held on with a tiny Tim Holtz paper clip.

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit! Looking forward to seeing your creations this week as well! Please stop by and see what the rest of the SPARKS team put together:
