Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #41

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 a better look of Kim's sketch:

Here is my card:


I used the lovely Rin and Snowman for my card. For some reason I just felt like I had to pair this image with Japanese washi paper. =)


The image is stamped and colored with Copic markers on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock.


The sentiment is from Hero Arts and it says "Merry Christmas" in Japanese.

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! =)
