Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #39

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 card:


I used the beautiful Charlotte with a Rose for my card. She is always so fun to color! My handmade embellishment is the white crochet flower and here is the patterned that I used.


I stamped Charlotte on Copic X-press It blending card, then colored her with Copic markers. The image is then cut out using a Labels Nine die. I also inked the piece with tattered rose distress ink when the paper was still in the die. The colored image is then matted with a paper doily.


The sentiment tag is cut using the Tiny Tags die and the sentiment is from the coordinating stamp set Tiny Tags. The patterned paper is from the beautiful Emma's Shoppe collection by Crate Paper.

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! =)
