Time for more "Sneak Peeks" from Annabelle

It's sneak peek time again here at Annabelle Stamps.  First up is the fabulous set called, (Thoughtful Stems).  As you can see there are several great floral stamps and great sentiments to pair with them.  For this card I chose to use the Wheat/Grass image and one of the sentiments for my card.  I saw this layout in the latest issue of Paper Crafts Sept./Oct. 2010 and thought it would be perfect for my card. 
I picked out some DP (SU-Sweet Pea - which is retired now)and based my colors from the patterned paper.
My card base is Old Olive layered with So Saffron.  The focal panel is different patterns of the Sweet Pea designer paper.  I stamped the Wheat on one of the patterns and colored it in with Chalks.  Then I sprayed the panel, my card base and the sentiment strip with a mixture of Hairspray and Gold Pearl Ex Powder for some added shimmer.  I tied some Linen Thread around the main panel, pierced the sentiment panel and added 2 Vanilla teardrop pearls (Annabelle Stamps) to complete the card.  Oops almost forgot to show you the card! LOL



Be sure to check out the other DT members blogs and leave comments on ALL the blogs for your chance to win this set for FREE.  Come back again on Tuesday for the next sneak peek.

Also there is a Sketch Challenge going on right now as well for a chance at another Prize so be sure to check that out as well.
