PS SPARKS, Moxie Fab and Simon Says Stamp

A neat sketch from this week's Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge (graphic below).

Here's my take on it (sorry about the lack of light):



I got a great deal on some Flower Soft which goes perfectly with the awesome tree trio on Spring Groves. I took the liberty of lengthening the trunks with a ruler and my Memento Tuxedo Black pen (love!).

After coloring in the trunks, I paper-pieced some Scor-tape adhesive sheet and smooshed in some Christmas Green Flower Soft.

I die-cut multiple postage stamp frames and glued them together as a sentiment frame.(I am entering this in the Moxie Fab Postage challenge.)

A close up of the dimension:


You can't tell from the photograph but I traced over the sentiment with a Clear Star gel pen.

Thanks for stopping by! You can check out my other Paper Smooches projects here.

I'm also entering this in the current Simon Says Stamp challenge: CAS.

Love the vertical take on the sketch--I loved the vertical too and used it for my card. Very striking and perfect for Dad's day.
