New Bling Sketch Challenge - ABSC019

Hi all. It was lovely to have a short work week this week!! So...that means it's time for a new Bling Sketch Challenge over at Annabelle Stamps. This challenge runs for 2 weeks, so you have plenty of time to take part. It's a wonderful sketch to work with, so give it a go!!

Here is the fun sketch we had to work with. This is quite different to any sketch that I have worked with before, but I had so much fun putting this one together. And what was even more fun was getting to play with all my new Annabelle goodies!!


And here is my card:


And here is a close-up of the embossed flower images, and the lovely new flowers and ribbon available from Annabelle Stamps.


And a side-on view:


The flower stamp I used on this card is one from the "Floral Stems" set. I have never been a big embosser, but part of the package I received was a tub of Opaque Vanilla embossing powder (also available from Annabelle Stamps), and I love the look it created on this card. Please pop on over to Annabelle Stamps to see all the wonderful new products available.

This challenge run for 2 weeks, and there is also a PRIZE up for grabs. Yiipppeee!! Andrea is offering the winner 6 metres of her new ribbon. So off you go now, and go and create a card.
