Paper Sweeties March Inspiration Challenge

Wow! Can you believe it is March 1rst!!!
This year is zooming by!

It is time for a new  
Inspiration Challenge here at

And here is our inspiration:

I had so much fun with this challenge!
Here is my card:

As you can see, I was inspired by both the colors and the chalkboard! I painted my adorable gum ball machine from the PS SWEET TREATS with Copic Markers.
 I coated the globe with Glossy Accents to give it a glass look!

I made the chalk background panel by stamping the sentiments from WISHING YOU over and over on a black piece of card stock with white ink. Then I sponged a little of the white ink around the edges to look like chalk dust!
And at the last minute, I decided to turn this into a shaker card with some gorgeous sequins from the Paper Sweeties Shoppe!!!
This card turned out so pretty and fun IRL!

We hope you will join us this month!
We always enjoy seeing your fabulous creations!!!
