Paper Smooches SPARKS-Hope Your Day Rocks

*** Scroll down to the post below or click HERE to see my card for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. *** 

This week’s Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge is an Anything Goes challenge. I used PS’s Stars dies and the Beboppin stamp set for this simple musical themed design.

Hope Your Day Rocks card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Paper Smooches
I crafted an old-school style vinyl record from a pair of circle die cuts. It’s hard to see in the photo, but I tried to make grooves in the record by using different sized circle dies and an embossing tool. You can see the lines pretty well IRL, just not in my poor photo! After attaching it to a white card base, I topped the album with a bunch of different sized silver stars, adhered with foam tape. The “hope your day rocks” sentiment was stamped at the bottom of the cardfront in bold red ink.

Don’t miss what the rest of the SPARKS team has created this week. Here’s where to find them:
