Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge

Here is the inspiration picture that Kim posted for the current Sparks challenge:

I looked at the challenge on New Year's Eve and came up with my card idea while the kids and I watched the ball drop. I first stamped the T.V. from the Boob Tubes set and then used the stick part of the flag image from Spiffy Scooters to hold the "ball". To make the "ball", I used the double circle image from Sugar Rush and added Ranger's Glossy Accents and glitter to make it sparkle. For the sentiment, I used the word "celebrate" from Sugar Rush. To get the rainbow effect, I inked each letter separately using my Stampin' Up markers. It doesn't show up well in the photo, but I used the asterisk sign from Spiffy Scooters to make confetti around the T.V. I used Versamark Sparkle, Amuse Simple Stick and glitter for the confetti. It is sublty sparkly in real life, but just does not translate well in the photo. Last, I added a colored rhinestone to the center of each confetti. Thanks for stopping by!
