It's a Party - Happy Birthday Annabelle Stamps

Happy Birthday! - Yes today we are celebrating a birthday.  Annabelle Stamps is officially 1 year old! - What a great year it's been.   I'm proud to be a part of the Annabelle Stamps Design Team and want to say thanks to Andrea for allowing me to be a part of this new Stamp Company and awesome design team.

To celebrate this event Andrea is having a BLOG HOP and you are invited to attend.
Since today is our (Say it With) challenge all the DT members will have a post using the theme...Say it with Yellow and Gray.

There is a PRIZE up for grabs for completing the Blog Hop.  You'll start the hop at the Annabelle Blog and proceed from there.  If you get lost along the way you can always return there for a list of the DT members blogs in the hop.

You should have arrived here from SUE'S blog and once you leave you'll proceed to RENE'S blog for the next stop on the hop.  Please leave a comment on ALL the blogs listed on the hop for your chance to win a Voucher for $20 to the Annabelle store.  The prize winner will be announced next Friday.

For my card today I used 2 Annabelle Stamp sets, (Sentimental Bluebells and Ballerina Rose). I stamped the Medallion with Basic Gray ink on Whisper White cs and cut it out with a Circle Nestabilitie Die.  Then I mounted that to another circle of Going Gray cs (retired SU).  I then cut out a smaller circle of Whisper White and stamped a portion of the flowers from the Bluebell set (I masked off the leaves first) and colored this with Prisma Colored Pencils.  I added some Crystal glitter (Art Institute) to the rim.
My designer paper is from an old retired SU series, Spring Flowers.  I was excited about finding a piece of dp with Yellow an Gray in it!  I paired this with Barely Banana cs and punched the lace border out of Basic Gray cs. Then I tied some Basic Gray satin ribbon (also retired SU) and sadly my last piece around the card.  This was mounted to a card base of Going Gray.  Finally I added some Silver Sprinkles to complete my card.

So off you go now on the Hop.  Have fun and don't forget to say Happy Birthday Annabelle Stamps!
