We're featuring another of the recent sets called Acacia today.


For my  card  I used 2 AnnaBelle sets. To the lighter green layer I  stamped  BBD 5 in SU so saffron. I stamped the main image to Watercolour card using Memento tuxedo black and coloured with Inktense Pencils.  These are a little different from ordinary watercolour pencils, the colours are so vibrant when you add a little water.
The dsp is from Basic Grey called Cappella and I've used some die cut lace and 3 Sprinkles in lemon. AnnaBelle's paper cord in Olive to complete the card.



Here's  a quick CAS card using the same image but stamping it with VersaMark and clear embossing to a pre-folded yellow card. With the sentiment stamped to a Label  die and a gold butterfly punched using a MS butterfly punch  it was a very quick card to produce!  Some AnnaBelle white satin ribbon with 3 lemon Sprinkles complete this one.




Don't forget to check the AnnaBelle Store where you'll find most things greatly reduced in price  during June.

Time to Hop over to our super creative KYLIE'S blog I know you'll enjoy your stay with her!!!!
Good Luck!!!!!

Awesome cards. Love your punched border on the first card and then the CAS design is just perfect for using this set without coloring the image in.
