Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #37

Hi all! Thanks for joining me for a card for this week's Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge. Here is this week's challenge:


Here is my take on the challenge.


I chose to use shades of brown/earth tones with pops of red for my card. Today is also the super sweet and talented Sparkle's birthday, so this card is for you, girl! =) Hope you have a fantabulous birthday! =)


The stamp that I used is Cafe Lucy. Mmmm... Me love my coffee, too! Black coffee that is. =) After stamping and coloring Cafe Lucy on a piece of PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, it's then cut and embossed with a Labels 17 die. The sentiment piece is cut and embossed with the smallest die from the Petite Ovals Small die set.


The card base is stamped using the script from the Papillon set from Stampers Anonymous with vintage photo distress ink. The strip of patterned paper is from the Circa 1934 collection by Cosmo Cricket and it's cut using the new Butterfies border die from Whiff of Joy Stamps. 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 fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!
