absc23 - Thinking of You (Prize Week too)

Hey it's Friday and we all know that that means...Yep, it's time for a new Annabelle Sketch Challenge!  This weeks sketch is really fun and we'd love it if you joined in on the fun.  Beside's a PRIZE is available so why not give it a shot.  The prize this week is a jar of gorgeous 3mm and 4mm Black Currant Metallics.  Let me tell you these Metallic Sprinkles are divine so you don't want to miss your chance at winning some.

Here is my card for this challenge.  It's bright but I just love how this one turned out. 
My card making process sometimes varies and for this card I started by picking out my paper first.  I went with some fun bright patterns from the new Cosmo Cricket - DeLovely Mini Deck.  They are so cheery and with all the rainy weather we've been having here I needed something bright to keep me feeling upbeat.

Next up I chose my image.  The flower is from, (Floral Stems) and the sentiment is from, (Swirl Tree).  I stamped both with Memento Tuxedo black ink and watercolored the flower using Summer Sun and Kiwi Kiss ink pads and an Aqua Painter.  I highlighted the flower with a Yellow Spica Glitter Pen.  See how shimmery it looks in the close-up. YUM!

My card base is Taken With Teal, layered with YoYo Yellow (soon to be retired from SU) and then the DP from Cosmo Cricket.  The focal image was mounted on Kiwi Kiss card stock.  At the bottom I added 4mm Lime Sprinkles and the flower has a 6mm Waterfall Sprinkle in the center.
So that's it for this week.  Be sure to stop by the Annabelle Blog and the other DT members blogs to see their take on this great sketch.  Be sure to leave some "Comment Lovin" because it's just nice to know you stopped by.

Have a great week and remember COMING SOON...New Annabelle Stamp Sets (You won't want to miss them)!!!
