Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #36

I just added a photo of my candy here. Please have a look-see or click on the photo on my side bar to find out how to enter. =)

Happy Tuesday, 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:

Somehow I think light pink stood for Spring. LOL! Just love seeing the colors coming back to the flowers. =)

I used the sweet Lantern Rin for my card. Sparkle has marked all the Rin stamps down to $5 and she will donate all proceeds of the Rin stamps until the end of March to the earthquake and tsunami victims in Japan.

My Lantern Rin was stamped and colored on Copic X-Press It cardstock then cut out using a Petite Ovals Large die. The image is then matted with a piece of patterned paper cut using a Petite Scalloped Ovals Large die before I stitched the layers together. I also glued two paper doilies together to make a bigger mat for the colored image. One of the patterned paper was punched with the cherry blossom punch. The patterned paper is from the Gossamer collection by Memory Box. The cute little heart and decor tags are from the Tiny Tags die set and the sentient is from the coordinate Tiny Tags stamp set.

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! =)
