Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge!

New Year means new challenges...
 
I am joining the fun over Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge.
 
 Sad to say that I have only three sets of Paper Smooches stamps, so I got very creative in using two sets that I have. The bunny and jelly beans images are from A Magical Spring and the sentiment is from My Guy. I think this makes a great encouragement card for anyone special in your life!you're an all star
This card is nearly 100 % stamped (except that small strip of grey pattern paper at the bottom). Lastly, it's also my very first time to use an enamel dot..., I know...where have I been been? (LOL).

PS: I felt that this is not a spectacular great card (as I was limited in stamps and designs)... I may not add the link to the challenge after all.  I'm just doing it as an "exercise"

edited: Thanks so much for the encouragement ( my cheer-leading team: Barb E., Joni, Aaga, Cecilia, Barb G...). You are right...what the heck, what do I have to lose, right? I linked it up :)

Thanks for stopping by!

I think he is very cute! And now that you have joined the enamel dot trend, you might not go back, but I warn you, it is a much more expensive trend than paint chips!
