Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge

I was so "proud" of this card I made for the latest Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge. Ha ha. But I snapped the photos really quickly before we left town, brought my memory card and laptop with me so I could get all bloggy in my downtime while the MILLION children run amok. And, now I'm disappointed in how my photo turned out! My colors don't show up very well. Drat! Figures, right? I just THOUGHT I was prepared. :) .... "story of my life...."

Here is the Picture Perfect photo challenge for SPARKS:

I drew my inspiration from the colors, balloons, beach and the little romantic couple. (Except my couple is the sweet little hamsters. Squee!)

I stamped the little hamsters, colored them and cut them out, layered up on foam tape over scrap papers I used to be my beach and ocean. It's all matted on a piece of B&T paper from my CTMH Footloose paper kit. I die-cut the hearts using my Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and secured some with adhesive and some with foam tape for dimension. I then drew the strings by hand. I sponged the sky using Sunflower, Goldrush, and a little Cotton Candy CTMH dye inks. I stamped the sentiment from the Sentiment Sampler set and the hamsters are from Party Possee. Sorry for the sub-par photo.     :( ...sniffle...
Thanks for stopping by to visit!
