You Rock

Hello! - Guess what it's time for another "Sneak Peek" of one of the upcoming stamp sets from Annabelle Stamps These stamps will be available to purchase on June 28th.                                    In the meantime Andrea and the other DT members are showcasing each stamp set (There are 4 available this month) and offering you a chance to WIN one of the sets.  It's really easy, all you have to do is stop by each DT members blog and find who has the next "sneak peek" picture on their blog and then hop back to the Annabelle Blog and leave a comment stating the name of the person who has the sneak peek picture on their blog.  You only have a limited 2 day period to get your guess in so don't delay.

Today's preview features an awesome stamp set called, "Rockin Instrumental."  I love this set.  I'm a huge music lover (especially Classic Rock) so this set was right up my alley. 
I absolutely love combing the colors: Black/White together.  They always look so striking so I went with that for my color scheme.  I altered a sketch I found in the latest "Go To Sketches" magazine to fit my card idea.  I followed the basic sketch but added the second smaller circle element.
I embossed the Guitar and the Sentiment using Black and White Embossing Powder.
My paper are from SEI (Eerie Alley) which is the wavy black/white piece and an unknown source on the black dotted piece. (Part of my scrap stash).
One of the things that I loved about this set was the addition of the Musical Notes. Don't they look fun on my card!
Other items used: Black/White Ribbon (American Crafts), Black Currant Sprinkles and White Pearls - Both are available from Annabelle Stamps.  - If you've never tried the Sprinkles you should order some.  They are fabulous. Not to be confused with Dew Drops since the Sprinkles have a metallic background that makes them really shimmer and shine.

So here are the DT Members Blogs: 

Please stop by and leave them some comment lovin' - They have worked hard to create some fabulous cards so be sure to check them out.
