Friday Sparks Challenge 11/30

Happy Friday,

This is my second post of the day!

I am popping in today to enter the awesome Paper Smooches Sparks challenge.  I am totally addicted to these challenges.  This week we have a photo inspiration. Go HERE to see all details!  Here is the photo:
Ok, I totally loved the colors in this photo.  I have really been loving the yellow and grey color combos and the chevron.  As soon as I saw it I new exactly what I was going to do.

First, I cut out some stars  using my Silhouette.  I then flicked some Heidi Swapp paint in the awesome grey/silver tone.  I really love this new paint spray- my new love!  I then used the negative space and backed it with some random paper from basic grey and pink paislee.  I then added the stamped sentiment - one of my favorite Paper Smooches stamp sets!  When I was done I thought it was lacking something so I brought out bling.  I added randomly added some bling around my stars.  I then layered it on top of a white card base!  I love how it turned out!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a wonderful and crafty weekend!
