Up For Another HOP - The Previews Continue

Hello - Did you all have a good time hopping on the first preview set (Ballerina Rose). So are you up for another great set and blog hop!  It's time to preview the next Annabelle Stamp set, (Branch Out).  This is a really fun set with some floral images, a branch image and lots of great sentiments and even a border stamp.                   The first thing I thought of when I saw the branch in the set was how much it reminded me of Mistletoe so I decided to make my card have a Christmas theme to it.  I started with a card base of Old Olive and layered Whisper White that I stamped the branch on with Old Olive ink.  Then I stamped the branch repeatedly on River Rock cs with River Rock ink, mounted this on the Whisper White piece rounded the corners and added some Linen thread and buttons.  The sentiment (Don't you love this sentiment. I know I do.) was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and layered on Real Red Card Stock.  I added Chili Sprinkles in various sizes for the berries of my Mistletoe branch to complete the card.
So do you want a chance to WIN this great set! - Yes...Well you know the drill.  Head over to ALL the Design Team members blogs and leave a comment on their card for your chance to win this set.  You have 2 days to do this but why wait...get hopping.

You can find a list of the DT members on my sidebar or on the Annabelle Blog.
