SCRS Challenge #53 -- Happy Anniversary

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 a color challenge -- to use the SCRS colors of Lime, Turquoise, Black and White.

This is our final challenge of July, so we'd like to say a HUGE thank you to our fabulous guest designer, Kerri Michaud! Thank you for joining us for our 1st anniversary month, Kerri! We appreciate all of your hard work and gorgeous inspiration!

I don't want to deceive you, so I am including a photo of the complete Cocktail Emily stamp that I used (see below). I stamped it entirely and cut out only Emily, leaving out the cocktail glass. I was wanting to try something different here... :) I added a strip of a scalloped die cut included with the Kaisercraft Chapter One collection (which I think is a nice match for the SCRS colors!), some seam binding and black pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty. Since we are celebrating the anniversary of SCRS this month, I thought it appropriate to make an anniversary card for Sparkle's 1st Anniversary.

Sparkle Creations is sponsoring Card Patterns this week, so I am playing along with the sketch. For all the details, please check out the current Card Patterns blog HERE.
