SCRSC33: Thanks For Making Me Smile

Hello Crafty Friends,

I'm checking in today with a fun card I made for Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps' challenge this week. The challenge? To use this fabulous sketch:

For my card I used the delightful Latern Rin image and more of the Stella Rose designer paper from My Mind's Eye. I used the colors from the paper to inspire my PrismaColor pencil coloring of Rin. I went with vibrant and lush. Nicey Nice!

After coloring and trimming the image I added a touch of gloss to the latern and the flower in her hair. I used my sewing machine to stitch the various pieces of designer paper to coordinating cardstock and accented with a couple of Aqua glitter brads and a bit of green striped ribbon. To finish a match sentiment was added and everything was adhered to a Poppy card base.
