AnnaBelle Stamps Blog Sketch Challenge # 2



Hi Guys,
Hope you all had a lovely week. It's been terrible here weather wise here in Adelaide as we have broken heat wave weather records and there's no relief in sight, it's still spring and I'm melting lol, so if it's so stinkin' hot NOW I'm dreading Summer...I really really wish winter was here roflol!

O.K. enough of my whingeing, no-one listens, right lol!

I'm very pleased to share with you my second card for this weeks AnnaBelle Stamps Blog Sketch Challenge # 2.
It was a fun sketch to work with and I just loving using all those Sprinkles!

So Here's My Card



I went for non traditional colours and used pastels and silver. I used Kraft Card Stock for my card base, Certainly Celery, Pretty In Pink Card Stock by SU! for my layering and I used Whisper White Card Stock for my focal image.

I'm really enjoying using embossing powders at the moment so one again I pulled out some and my heat gun.
I embossed the tree from the 'Jewelled Tree' stamp set in Silver and the sentiment is also from the jewelled tree set and again embossed it with Silver embossing powder.
I used some Blossom and Olive Sprinkles for the tree decorations and used some newly released Silver Mini Sprinkles in the corners, 3 in each corner.
For a little more embellishment I used some Pretty In Pink Taffeta Ribbon and Certainly Celery Grosgrain ribbon from Stampin' Up! and wrap the ribbon around the Pretty In Pink layer and tied some Silver thread in a bow at the side of the card.

So that's my card for this week. I do hope you can play along, you can use any of your stamps and bling from your stash, while your there check the other wonderful, talented and creative DT girls cards, their stunning!
