Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp Challenge 28

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I am here to share a card for this week's Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp Challenge. The talented and sweet Sparkle invited me to join her wonderful team and I couldn't say no to her. I adore the stamps that Sparkle Creations carries! You will know why in a bit. =) Big thanks to Sparkle for inviting me!! =)


This week's challenge is to make a card with girl images or to make a girly card and here is what I came up with:


See! I told you these stamps are beautiful! This image is Charlotte with a rose. I think Charlotte is such an beauty.


After coloring and cutting her out with a die, I masked Charlotte then inked the paper and stamped Hero Arts' Friend Definition over it. The sentiment piece is made the same way.


The lush patterned paper that I used is from the Restoration collection by Crate Paper. I adore these yummy paper and it's perfect for a girly card! The sentiment is from the Very Vintage Christmas set by Waltzingmouse Stamps.

That's all I have for today. Hope you can join us this week! Please go and check out what the other design team members came up with for this challenge and find out all the details here.



Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!
