Thursday Sparks Challenge12/12

Happy Thursday,

The weekend is here!  Oh I can hardly wait!!  I have so many things to do because we start going to holiday family parties next week and I have to finish my shopping!  YIKES!!  Are you ready for the holidays?

I am playing along with the Paper Smooches Sparks weekly challenge this week and this week we had a photo inspiration.  I totally LOVE these.  Here is  look at the inspiration:
I stuck pretty close to the inspiration for my card. 
I started with some Core'dinations Dark Essentials for my base and then took the new 110lb. white smooth cardstock and cut it slightly smaller.  I stamped my images (using all Paper Smooches stamps) and colored them with my Spectrum Noir markers.  Under the sentiment I scored the cardstock.  I also then "roughed" up my edges just to give it a bit of a distress look.  Why did I do this?  I don't know- LOL!!!
