Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #30

Happy Tuesday everyone! =) Thanks for joining me for a card for this week's Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp Challenge. Here is this week's challenge:


Here is my card.


The challenge this week is paper piecing. I have to admit that I don't do this a lot as I am a coloring addict, but I had fun making this one.


I used some of my beloved washi paper to piece Lantern Rin's kimono. Isn't she adorable?


The same washi paper was used for the rest of my card except that I backed the matting of the image and the sentiment washi paper (red) with cardstock for stability. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

That's all I have. Please go and check out what the other design team members came up with for this challenge and find out all the details for the challenge here.

Hope you can join us this week! =)



Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!
