AnnaBelle Stamps - Say It In Cream







Friday is challenge day at AnnaBelle Stamps and as you know one week Andrea has a Sketch Challenge the next week we're challenged  to Say it in ...... or  Say it with .........  
Last week was Sketch Challenge 027 you can see the details here . We would really like to see some more of your beautiful creations, so, come on join in........ Andrea has a prize on offer for the Sketch Challenges and the prize for 027 is one of ABS brown Petal Kits.  In this kit you'll find three sizes of brown, beige and white petals, three  cards of satin ribbon and also a mixture of AnnaBella's gorgeous sprinkles and pearls.  
On to this weeks challenge, which is to Say It In Cream.  For my card  I chose to work with ABS Ballerina Rose from the July release. 
The sentiments with this set are lovely and I've used one that is perfect for me, living so far from family.

I've stamped the main image from Ballerina Rose along with one of the smaller flower shapes onto Cream card using VersaMark ink, then embossed with
opaque vanilla embossing powder.  The Websters Pages DP has a scalloped border, punched using an EK Success diamond lace border punch.

Along the top edge of the DP I added some scrunched up white double faced satin ribbon that I coloured using a Copic Marker.  

The sentiment was embossed with rich gold embossing powder and cut and embossed using a Spellbinder Labels 10 die.  I coloured a white petal as per the ribbon and added a pearl centre before adding this detail to the sentiment. The sentiment was attached to the card with foam tape.

To complete my card I sat the front onto some gold card (I love cream and gold, it looks so lush and reminds me of weddings!). As a finishing touch I added four small heart shaped pearls. 

I really hope you'll join in this week, I'd love to see all your cream creations!  This little card is on it's way to Mum in the UK. We had a great time when I was home but seven days just wasn't long enough........

See you soon.
