Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge: May 14-20th

Paper Smooches is now doing their challenges weekly instead of bi-weekly. Which means more fun ways to participate and create with their super cute stamps. Each week brings about a different kind of challenge...this week is the Designer Drafts Challenge. This is the sketch that we were to draw inspiration from for our projects:

I went through my Paper Smooches stamps and decided on this big "thanks" sentiment, perfect for coloring. And the lines on the sketch screamed "twine" to me. So here is what I came up with:

Supplies Used: Bazzill Cardstock; Divine Twine - Cherry & Orange; Doodlebug Doodle Twine - Bright Assortment; Jillibean Soup Bean Stalks Blue/Green Twine; X-Press it Cardstock; Memento Ink - Tuxedo; Copics: R24, R29, YR12, YR16, Y00, Y02, G02, G05, B21, B23, BG01, BG05; Buttons - Misc.

A fun, simple, happy card. And surprise!...a rainbow color scheme!! Just can't seem to get off of this kick!

Here is a closer look at the Paper Smooches "Chit Chat" stamp set I used:

The deadline for this challenge is May 20th...still lots of time to play along! Thanks for looking!
