absc10 - "Bling it on!"

If you are here for the 3CT Challenge click HERE

Wow it's RELEASE DAY over at Annabelle Stamps
and you are in for a real treat.  There are 5 new stamp sets and lots of great (Bling) with new Sprinkles, Pearls & even Twinkling H2O's so be sure to check it all out.

Also don't forget to go to the Annabelle Blog to see the new sketch challenge and what the DT did with the sketch.  You won't be disappointed.

For my card I chose 2 of the new stamp sets.  The first set is Flowers With Love - It's a beauty with several whimsical style flowers and some great sentiments as well. 

Since my mom's birthday is this coming Monday I decided to use this as her birthday card so this week she doesn't get to see the Annabelle Sketch Challenge since I want her card to be a surprise.

Now take a peek at the lower left corner of this card.  Do you see all that gorgeous BLING!  Well there are two new sets designed specifically for using bling (in this case some lovely Blossom Sprinkles).  When you use these stamps they give you the perfect placement for whatever type of bling you might want to use.  I know one of the DT members mentioned using them as a guide for using Perfect Pearls (that sounds neat).  You could also use them for creating unique backgrounds as well.  The set I used is called, Flourishes.  I chose to only add my bling at every other dot so you can see the dots in the Kiwi ink showing along with the pretty blossom sprinkles.
My image was watercolored and I raised up one of the flowers using dimensional tape.  I also added a sprinkle and some glitter to the center of the flower.
My designer paper is from the Mimosa Line by S.E.I.  - I just love the colors.  You can see another card I made with this same paper HERE

Now it's your turn to try this great sketch out.  Be sure to leave a link on the Annabelle Blog so we can see your creations.  Hope you've enjoyed your visit and don't forget to head over to see all the new stuff at Annabelle Stamps.  Have a great day!
