pun for all

i made a quick card today for the latest designer drafts challenge at the paper smooches sparks challenge blog! 

the sketch is fun and all of the inspiration is just amazing! so i got to it!

i used the paper smooches 'squeaky clean' stamp set (love that set!) for this card. 

i tried to use some bright and cheery colors (they reminded me of a sunset!) with the exception of one color...i used a little bit of purple since i'm sending this card to a friend of mine who loves purple! but it's no secret i'm not a fan of the color. and you may think that with this little bit of purple, it may have gone unnoticed by me. no, not the case. my war against the color purple rages on. :) ha ha!

so anyway, the vacuum is paper-pieced, and i even added a little glossy accents to the 'light' of it! :)

i added some faux stitching to this card because i felt like it needed a little something else! i would have used my sewing machine and really stitched it, but my beloved sewing machine is out of commission at the moment...something with the tension, and i have to figure out a way to get it going again! it's so sad! ha ha!

so that's it! get your stamps inky and join in the fun! oh, and check out the other cards for this challenge!! your mind will be blown! :)
