Annabelle December Release - Day 1

Hello! - Well if you are anything like me you're still wondering how you're going to get everything done in time for Christmas.  If not...I want to slap you (just kidding).

Today is the first day of the December release for Annabelle Stamps and that means it's also a
BLOG HOP.  You'll start on the Annabelle Blog
and hop your way around the Design Teams blogs leaving a comment on each blog along the way.  Then head back to the Annabelle Blog and answer a simple question for your chance at winning this set:  Stemmed Flowers.

Isn't it pretty! - So many possibilities.  I wish I would have had more time to play with it but alas I was only able to create just one card since I'm still trying to finish up my Christmas cards and get them mailed out.  I hope you like what I came up with though.
I have been stuck on Christmas cards and while this isn't exactly a Christmas card it could be used for one since I used holiday colors.
Card Base: Always Artichoke.
Layered with Whisper White and Old Olive accents.  Designer paper is retired SU.
Inks: Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler and Basic Black (smiles sentiment).
Other: Punch-MS, Brads-SU,
Blossom Sprinkles-Annabelle Stamps, Paper Piercing Tool.

Now you should have arrived here on my blog from Sue's Blog  and your next stop will be Rene's Blog - Hopefully all the links will be working correctly.  If not the order of blogs goes as follows:

Have fun hopping!

Gorgeous card, Ida! the background paper you used is very pretty and I like that border too. They work well with the new stamps!

Rose said...

Very cute card, put a "thank you" where the smiles is and you'd have an excellent Christmas thank you card, it does scream Christmas. Love the idea.
