Annabelle Stamps.......Say It in...Pink and Brown


Welcome to this Friday post for Annabelle Stamps. Andrea has challenged us to ....Say it in......Pink and Brown, which is probably one of my favourite colour combinations.

I've used a sketch from 2 sketches 4 you sketch 50 this week and I've kept it really simple.
My base card is Chocolate brown from American Crafts Autumn colours. To this I added my pink white dotted dp, which is Grant Archival double sided. Some double faced satin ribbon and three gems from the new brown petals kits came next.

I've used one of the images from Flowers For You for my focal point. The vase was stamped to a scrap of Bitter Sweet dp and cut out. The flowers are stamped in SU chocolate chip onto pure white card that has been cut and embossed with a Spellbinder Labels die. Copic markers were used to colour this little spray of flowers and the centres were set with three tiny blossom gems, from the pink petals kit. I've used a sentiment from the same set stamped directly onto the dp to complete my card.

I wanted a small token for a neighbour so added this little purse size note book. The back is in the same chocolate brown card which comes over to the front of the notebook. The front edge punched with a SU lace punch, some pale pink ribbon tied in a bow across the centre.
I've used the same vase of flowers onto more of the dotted pink dp to complete the front of this little note book.

Go check out Andrea and the other designing divas to see how they said it in Pink and Brown this week and play along with us if you can.

Just a reminder that the last weeks sketch challenge ABSC019 is still open with a great ribbon prize for one randomly picked winner. If you have time why not enter a card .... you just might be our winner.

Thanks for dropping by hope you all have a great week end.
Till next time.........
