Annabelle Holiday Release Party

It's a Party!  Join us as Annabelle Stamps starts their previews of the new Holiday Stamps.        You'll be hopping around the DT blogs starting first with the Annabelle Blog.  You'll need to leave a comment on each blog and then head back to the Annabelle Blog and leave a comment saying you completed the Hop.
  You should have arrived here from Sue's Blog and your next stop will be Rene's Blog  but don't worry because if you get lost along the way you can always return to the Annabelle Blog and find the list of the DT members blogs to get back on track. 

The first set the DT is previewing is called, Santa's Star and features a number of really fun holiday images.  I chose to use a couple of the smaller images in the set for my card today. 
 I found a great card by Michelle Woerner (Stop and Stamp the Roses) that was based on TESC 124 Sketch so I went with that sketch for my card idea.  I wanted something quick and easy since I had accidentally made my card for today using the set that we'll be previewing on Friday.  I discovered this late last night so I had to scramble to get a card ready for today.  I like how it turned out though and hope you do as well.

My card base is: Garden Green layered with Cherry Cobbler.  The DP is from Basic Grey (Eskimo Kisses line).  The stockings were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Prisma Color Pencils.  I added White Liquid Applique and Glitter to the tops of the stockings.  You can see the sparkle in the close-up:

I lightly sponged on Bashful Blue ink before mounting the stockings with foam mounting tape.  The ribbon is Light Pink Grosgrain and I used some Blossom Sprinkles on the border punch (EK Success).
So now hop on over to the next blog and be sure to leave a comment on each blog for a chance to win this set.  All sets will be available after Sunday.
