Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge

This is my 2nd post for today. For my Paper Crafter's Library guest design work, please visit here

Hello! I am popping in to share my last minute entry for Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge!
I used this as a sketch and created a colorful card.you add color to my life 
First, I created a colorful water-colored background on paper.  Then I stamped, masked and paper-pieced the pieces and added to the canvas and brushes. The bottom piece of colored paper is from American Crafts. It matches my colors perfectly! Lastly, I added the orange ribbons (remember them?) from May Arts.

Thanks for stopping by!
