SCRS Challenge #32 -- Enjoy...

Hello! It's time for an all new Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge! We hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are ready for some new challenges! 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 a sketch challenge.. yea! I love sketch challenges! The lovely sketch was designed by my fellow DT-mate, Kim!

I stuck pretty close to the sketch except that I swapped out the big circle layer for a heart and added a punched scroll border to the bottom. I stamped, colored and cut out Scooter Chloe and popped her in the center of my card. I added my sentiment to the tag along with some peridot rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty, a seam binding bow and rose.

Here's a full-sized version of the sketch:

Sparkle Creations is sponsoring Etsy Inspired Challenges this week, so I decided to combine it with our sketch challenge. This week's inspiration comes from the shop Desired Things. I chose to use this altered notebook as my inspiration for the colors of my card:
