PS SPARKS Challenge

Hello, friends! It's time for the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge! This week is a cool shades challenge:

For today's cafe creation, I started with the papers from Crate Paper Storyteller collection. I knew I wanted to use the "prayers" sentiment from the PS set Spiritual Sampler. Then I pulled out "Needle Little Love" and made this collage style tag for the focal point.

 I created the tag and used the stitches stamp to give it a stitched look. I started layering and moving things around, subtracting and then adding...a little ribbon, a little lace, a heart shaped rhinestone, some silver Stickles.

I spent about an hour in the craft room, just having fun with the creative process and enjoying where it takes me.

Blessings, cafe friends!
