Annabelle Stamps - Say It In Black and White


I hope you all enjoyed seeing the October previews for Annabelle Stamps and have been able to take advantage of the special deal this month........check the Annabelle Blog for details, if you missed them.
Oh and congratulations to the three winners from our preview Blog Hops. Sarah, Wendy and Elena Don't forget to post your links so we can see how you use your new sets. Better still make a card for our challenges!!

Today Andrea has challenged us to say it in Black and White.  I couldn't resist using  Lil' Michelle with her best friend for my card.

I've also used one of the small accent stamps that came with Backgrounds By Design - Numbers, the small parcel that fits so well into the spaces between the stamped squares. I've just randomly stamped it in white chalk ink across some black DP  to add a little interest.   Michelle is stamped onto X-Press It Blending card and coloured with four shades of grey Copic Markers.

A punched border, some stitched ribbon along with a button and a Spellbinder tag came next. Then to finish I added six little teardrop pearls from the store.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Anything Goes - black and white
Tuesday Throwdown - anything goes
Craftalicious - anything goes
Cowgirl's Sunday Challenge  - create your own background
I Did It Creations - for a girl
Sweet Stampin - ribbon
Marks Finest Paper - stitching

Don't forget enter each of our challenges or combine the Say It In Challenges with our  Sketch Bling Challenge,  to increase your chance of winning a voucher to shop at the Annabelle Stamps Store.  The winner for this month will be randomly picked as the next Sketch Bling Challenge is announced. (29th Oct.)

See you soon..............
