SCRSC55: Charlotte with a Rose

Happy Tuesday everyone!

This week at Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps challenge we have a wonderful photo that we would like you to take inspiration from when making your challenge creations:

I wanted to use the green of the grass, the blue of the water, the white and lattice shape of the seating and the neutral colour of the stone tiles as my inspiration from this photo.  Whilst I was rooting around for some suitable paper, I rediscovered the gorgeous Memory Box 'Frond' 6x6 paper (which I see is no longer being made ... *sob*!) and as soon as I saw this sheet it reminded me of tree branches!  So I went with this, adding in a fence and some grass.  And of course I just had to use the darling Charlotte with a Rose sitting under the branches of the tree:

I also wanted to add in the white paper lanterns from the photo, and so created them by simply running some white paper through my paper crimper, punching a hole in the top, threading some twine through and voila! 

Here is a list of supplies, complete with links, should you wish to do a little retail therapy:
