Sparkle Creations 1st Anniversary Throwback Challenge!!

Hello! In addition to our weekly Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps challenge, we are kicking off July with a special Anniversary Throwback Challenge! This challenge will last all month long and the winner will receive the complete August release! For all the details, please visit the SCRS blog.

Your challenge is to create a card or project using one of the original 8 images that Sparkle released one year ago. To refresh your memory, the challenge graphic has a little snippet of each character. They are Charlotte With a Rose, Cocktail Emily, Cupcake Ruby, Lantern Rin, Scooter Chloe, Surfing Oliver, Swimming Lucy and Turntable Josh.

As this is also our first official challenge for the month of July, we welcome a new Guest Designer, the fabulous Kerri Michaud! Welcome, Kerri!

Here's my card with Surfing Oliver:

I went simple with my card today. I used some patterned paper from the Echo Park Splash collection. I stamped, colored and cut out the sweet image of Oliver and popped him on top of the patterned paper. I added some waves (using the Taylored Expressions Wave Border Die) and the sentiment Life is Good (from Verve's Relax).

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:
