Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge

This month's Sparks Challenge over at Paper Smooches runs from March 8th to 21st.  The photo we are to use for inspiration is this...

I made two cards inspired by some aspect of this lovely felt flower wreath.

With the first card, I took inspiration from the colors, the felt, the and the flowers.  I used a Kraft cardstock base like in the inspiration image. The large white circle is felt that I cut out using my Spellbinders Nestabilities.  I did a very soft pink coloring on the kitty to stick with the pale feel of the inspiration image and added a few embellies to tie it all together. The sentiment is from the Word Salad set, and the Kitty is from the Party Posse set.

I added a few tiny bits of bling to the little kitty's collar to glam her up a bit. I thought it looked pretty cute.
Supplies used: Stamps: Paper Smooches; Cardstock: Bazzill, Xpress-It white;  Markers: Copics RV0000, RV21, B000, B02; Stamping Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Distress Ink: Ranger/Tim Holtz; Roses: Prima; Yellow fabric flower: Dollarama; Felt: Dollar Store; Die Cuts: Spellbinders Nestabilities; Rhinestones: Kaisercraft; Ribbon: Renaissance by Design; misc: buttons, embroidery floss

My next card took me out of my comfort zone a bit. I don't normally make such a plain card, but I always like it when others do it so I thought I would give it a try.

 Supplies used: Stamps: Paper Smooches; Cardstock: Bazzill; Ink: Stampin' Up, Memento; Twine: Devine Twine, Corner rounder punch: EK Success; misc: buttons.
This card is made with the My Guy set.  I saw this fun way to attach buttons on a card I pinned on Pinterest and this is the first chance I've had to try it out. I really like it and I'm sure you'll see me using this one again!

I am really missing my camera and I hope it comes home to me all fixed and ready to "snap" really soon, cause I'm just NOT lovin these pictures my old point and shoot takes!

Thanks for looking!
