Paper Smooches Sparks - Celebrate

Hey there!

(Thank You Paper Smooches Sparks DT for the shout out! I am honored, Thank you to the My Craft Spot DT for Top 3 selection)

It's Memorial Day Weekend in the States, and it's time for us to pay tribute to those who have sacrificed for freedom not only for the USA, but others. 

I have a little card to share. I was completely inspired by the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge this go around and this is what I came up with. 
I started with a Lunch Bag Kraft card base onto which I layered my white cardstock and patterned papers. I took a length of white seam binding and tied off in a fussy bow embellished with a button and twine. 

At this point, I started building the center focal image of layers! 

I paper-pieced the ice cream from Paper Smooches Sugar Rush adding to my oval die-cuts and embellished with some glittery stickles and a button. I added some ribbon snippets which I banner cut the ends and placed between my star and focal image finally layering on the red die-cut. 

Lastly, I stamped Celebrate onto a half decorative oval and placed at the top of my card. 

As mentioned, I found inspiration at Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge
I am also joining in at Sunday {Fun}day Linky Party, DL Art Thankful Thursday Anything Goes Linky Party, 3 Girl Jam - Anything goes with ribbon, Little Scrap Pieces - Red, White, and Blue. My Craft Spot - Ribbon and Twine

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! I will be back tomorrow night for the new challenge at The Ribbon Reel!
