absc12 - a little birdie told me.......



Hello,
how's your week end going? I sat and made a card last night cos I know I'll be glued to the TV tonight watching the tennis!!!


This is my card for Annabelle Stamps bling sketch challenge no 12. Have you entered your's yet? I know Betty has....... so Olga, Patti, Mary Anne........ come on girls join the fun in Aus.

I've used some SU striped dp that I really like in Baja Breeze, brown , beige and white stripes.
The image which is another of the little stamps I bought in Riot Art Supplies was stamped in Baja Breeze as was the sentiment.

I punched the bottom edge of the dp using a Fiskars Upper Crest punch and used this edge to dictate the placement of the bling. I used Annabella Stamps white pearls to finish off the sketch.

Recipe:

Card: American Crafts chocolate brown. Romanprint white ridged card for card base. SU Baja Breeze and SU DP. GKD Pure Luxury in pure white for stamped image.
Stamp: Riot art Supplies My Memories - Love Bird.
Ink: SU Baja Breeze Prisma Pencil in beige.
Embellishments: Annabella Stamps - white pearls. SU ribbon/tape. Metal Swirl and ricrac from my stash.
Other: Spellbinders Classic Oval Dies and tags. Cuttlebug Emossing folder Swiss dots. Fiskars Upper Crest Punch.
