SCRS Challenge #37 -- Enjoy Today

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 to use neutrals with a splash of color!

This is our first challenge of April, so please welcome our Guest Designer, Suzanne Bier! Thanks so much, Suzanne, for joining us this month!

Today is also our fearless leader's birthday! Happy, Happy Birthday, Sparkle!

I used Charlotte with a Rose on my card for today.. For embellishments, I dyed some seam binding with a Copic marker, added a hand tatted flower (from my SIL, Mary!) and added a little pearl to the center. My card just went out in the mail today, so it will be a few days late.. :(

For my layout, I used Unscripted Sketches #100. They are celebrating their 2-year anniversary and 100th sketch AND Sparkle Creations is sponsoring this week! If you play along, you have a chance to win Scooter Chloe and Swimming Lucy!

Here's their fun sketch:
