Paper Smooches Sparks: Trend Watch

Did you know Paper Smooches has a challenge posted every week now on the Sparks blog?? So that is two more chances a month to win their know I'm in! ;) You can check it out yourself, here. Here is the card I created for their Trend Watch challenge:

Here is the inspiration picture they gave us to use:

First, I cut the "sun" out of Lillybee Designs paper (that Suzanne left for me after our crafting evening last night!) with a Nestabilities circle die. The clouds are all from Eco Friendly. The balloons and tiny clouds are from Metropolis. I used other papers from the Lillybee Designs pack for the balloons. The sentiment is from Eco Friendly.

Notice the face on the sun? From Vegtastic! It is actually the face on the tomato ;)

The embossing folder I used is from Tim Holtz.

The twine is from the Twinery, & all cardstock is from PTI. Does this card not make you smile? It does for me :)

Here's wishing you (and me!) some has been raining here a lot lately and I'm about ready for the sun to stick around awhile :)
