SCRS78: Cherry Blossoms

** Please scroll down to the next post to see my Ribbon Carousel Challenge card. **

Hello Craft Friends,

Today I have a fun Sparkle Creations sketch challenge to share with you! For this week’s challenge you just need to make a card using the sketch below:


For all of the details on the challenge head over to the Sparkle Creations Blog (fyi – the blog location changed recently). You can find Sparkle Creations stamps online at the store HERE.


For my card I used Cherry Blossom Rin and paired her with some of my favorite Basic Grey Konnichiwa designer paper.  I have to admit that in the past I was not the biggest fan of their paper… but I LOVE the new lines that they have been producing. :)

I stamped Rin in Memento Tuxedo Black on Choice Snow White cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  I used the Melon Spica pen on her hair sticks for a bit of added sparkle.


In the upper right corner of the main panel I punched two tiny holes close to each other and through them tied a bow using Maraschino Baker’s Twine.  I then adhered a Prima paper flower over the knot using a couple of foam dimensionals.  For a final touch and to balance the red elements I added tiny red rhinestones in a few places.
