This week's Paper Smooches Challenge is a Picture Perfect Challenge - where we use the picture below as our inspiration for creating our card!

Based on the crayons picture and the neutral color base - I decided to go with the neutral-colored kraftcard as my base. 
* A scalloped heart was die-cut from the front of the card, with a part off the edge off the card - using QuicKutz Nesting Scallop Hearts - a piece of transparency was affixed to the heart aperture.
* A line of mini crayons (from Paper Smooches - Smarty Pants stamp set) were stamped at the left side to 'point' towards the inset of the card - some were separately stamped on whitecard, colored and fussy-cut before affixing with mounting foam.
* The inside of the card is a light yellow patterned paper (edges distressed) with the stamped easel and sentiment (from Paper Smooches - I Heart Art stamp set) showing through the aperture - the multi-colored sentiment was stamped using Kaleidacolor Autumn Leaves rainbow dye inkpads from Tsukineko.
