Paper Smooches Sparks: Designer Drafts June 2012

So here is the idea that I was telling you about that I had for this PS eagle from the "Circle of Honor" set...I recently received the Amuse set "Wish you were here" and thought that the eagle would look perfect in front of the US...I think it turned out pretty cute :)

This card is using the sketch from this week's Paper Smooches Sparks challenge:

The twine is from the Twinery and the patterned paper I used is from an October Afternoon pack called 5 & Dime (I got this for seriously cheap at the yard sale I went to last weekend!) The sentiment is also from the Circle of Honor set. The tea dye duo ink is PTI and so is the cardstock. The ink for the US is from SU.

I haven't been around as much lately as I'd like. I've been really busy with work and my volunteer group (that I'm now the president of!) but also, I got to meet Michael J. Fox on Friday night! We had a photo opportunity with him, also, so as soon as I get the photo I'll share it with you all and tell you more about the awesome experience :) But because of all of this, I also have a pile of unfinished Father's Day cards on my dining room table :( One of my stamping friends is coming over tomorrow and I will not stop until I finish them and they WILL be sent out tomorrow!


  1. Awesome card. Is it for a design team challenge? Because if it is, you will totally win! I'd love to hear about how you met Michael J. Fox. I think he is the best. I've read all of his memoirs--such an interesting and inspiring guy. Good luck on all your Father's day cards.

  2. Jessica...this little eagle looks great no matter what card you put it on, but sitting over the top os the US and with the sentiment, "Proud", just so perfect. I love how you used the patterned paper in the back, dots and stars in opposite colors, just so clever. I have to agree with Joyce, if this is a challenge, this card will win.

  3. How fun! Can't wait to see the pictures! This card is fabulous the proud eagle!

  4. This eagle looks like he was made for the US map. Love this card! Sounds like your having fun. I think it's wonderful that you are volunteering some of your time. Good for you! :) can't wait to see your picture.

  5. Ooh...oooh! I recognize this card! :) Not sure why I wasn't following you before, but I have you in my google reader now. It was fun seeing you again tonight!!


I am thrilled that you have come to check out my cards :) I truly love getting comments, thank you so much for writing one to me!
