SCRS Challenge #30 -- Birthday Wishes

Speaking of SCRS, it's time for an all new Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge! Each week we will post an all new challenge at this time (9 PM PST on Mondays). For all the details, please visit the SCRS blog. This week's challenge is paper piecing!

I had looked all over for the Making Memories Je t'Adore collection and just got it recently. I didn't get a chance to make any Valentine's with the paper, but I decided that some of the patterns could still be used year-round. I chose to use Charlotte with a Rose today. I stamped and colored the sweet image and did some paper piecing with the light pink polka dot paper to soften her a bit. I fussy cut her out and popped her on top of all of my layers. I used the February Sketch For You To Try for my layout.

For more SCRS inspiration and details, please visit the SCRS blog to see the design team's wonderful creations and their individual blogs for more details:
