Sparkle Creations Challenge #79: May Flowers

Hello everyone!
I hope your week is off to a great start so far!

I have some exciting news to share with you....I was asked to guest design for Sparkle Creations this month!

Today we have a challenge for you...May Flowers!

Instead of using flower embellishments, I decided to use an image with flowers in it...

Here's what I came up with:
I used Cherry Blossom Rin from Sparkle Creations.  Isn't she SO cute?!  Well, if you have been following me for a may know that I've spent time in Japan and have a bit of a soft spot for all things, of course, I ADORE all of the Rin stamps from SCRS!

I used some retired papers from the Basic Grey Boxer collection. I coloured Rin up with Copics (C3, C5, C7, C9, E50, E51, E53, R02, E55, E57, E59, B95, B97, B99, R24, R27, R29, E44, Y21, Y23, Y26)) and paper-pieced her dress.  I then cut the image out with Spellbinders Classic Circles, sponging it with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Old Paper.  I added some machine stitching and finished off the card with a seam binding bow and some pearls.

Anyway, head on over to the Sparkle Creations Blog to see the challenge details and check out what the other girls came up with!

I hope you'll play along!

Happy Stamping!
