More Annabelle Fun - Sneak Peek #3

Hello!  Have you been enjoying the sneak peeks this week!  Today we are showcasing a beautiful stamp set called,        Sentimental Bluebells.
This is going to be a "favorite" set for sure.  It's got some great sentiments all of which will fit inside the medallion image.  It's actually open and the sentiment shown in the photo is a separate stamp.  For my card I wanted to use the Medallion, the sentiment and one of the Bluebell images.  I chose another layout from the Go to Sketches but decided to add a layer of DP which wasn't in the sketch so I guess it's a bit of a "twist" from the original sketch.  That's what I think is great about buying these magazines is that you can find a sketch/card you like and then alter it to make it your own.  As you can see I also left off the two bottom side elements and instead used the floral Blue Bell image as a focal element. I stamped and cut out the larger Bluebell and raised it with foam mounting tape.
Card Stock:  Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, Whisper White and Designer Paper (Cosmo Cricket - DeLovely line).I stamped my medallion first with Bermuda Bay ink and then cut it using a Circle Nestabilitie Die.  I added Blossom Pink Sprinkles and stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on another pattern piece of the DeLovely paper then raised it up on the medallion.  This was mounted on a piece of Melon Mambo that I cut with the Labels 8 Die and then cut in half and pierced the edges..  I also used my EK Success Scroll and Dots border punch. 

So what do you think?  I love that you can choose to color these beautiful flowers as some of the DT has done or you can simply stamp them like I did here with ink and they look just as awesome.
