paper smooches sparks challenge

I decided to enter the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge for the first time. I always see the challenges on the blog, but I've never made anything for it. But today I felt like playing with some dies and stamps. 

I covered the Paper Smooches Tag Stitched Die with some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. Then I die cut the Paper Smooches Rainbow out of some Stampin' Up double-sided adhesive on top of Neenah white cardstock. I adhered Doodlebug glitter to give the rainbow color. I then used double-sided Scor-tape on Neenah cardstock, and stamped the cloud from Paper Smooches Spectrum on top of the sticky tape using Hero Arts Soft Granite Shadow Ink. Then I covered the cloud with Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter, and then cut it out. I attached the rainbow and cloud to the tag with Glue Dots and 3M foam adhesive. Then I stamped the greeting from Paper Smooches Spectrum on a scrap of Neenah cardstock with the Soft Granite ink, and cut it into a banner shape. I used a little more Tumbled Glass Distress Ink on the edges. I glued that down, and then tied some Doodlebug twine at the top. I like how it turned out. It's very colorful and fun, which is what I needed today, as it snowed again. I'm so ready for spring!

Thanks for stopping by!
