Lantern Rin

If It's Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium. Raise your hand if you remember that movie! I think I saw it many many years ago, but it's really the name that has always stuck in my head. In this case, if it's Tuesday, it must be time for another Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp Challenge!!!

Today we have an awesome sketch for you designed by Mary Giles. You know me... I LOVE a good sketch challenge, and this one's a keeper!

The challenge runs from now until 9:00 pm Pacific time on Sunday, July 25th. One player will be randomly drawn to win a Sparkle Creations stamp!!! You must use a Sparkles Creation stamp to win the prize, but who can resist these adorable images? We love to see you SPARKLE!

My card features Lantern Rin. I love her!!! I dug around in my stash, having thought I remembered buying some Japanese patterned rice paper a long time ago, and lucky me, I found it! I realize it's a bit on the busy side, but that's what caught my eye. hee hee

As you can see, I paper pieced Rin's lantern and kimono. I love how it turned out... even though it was a LOT of cutting between those pieces and the entire image. I also dug up the coin from an old stash. Funny the things you find when you go digging around in your craft room! The cardstock was embossed with the Square Lattice Sizzix embossing folder from Stampin' Up. I love the texture.

Please be sure to click over to the Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps blog to see the cards created by Sparkle and the rest of her design team... and come play with us this week! We'd LOVE to see what you create with your Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps and Mary's sketch! Oh, and did I mention there's a prize involved???
