Say It With...Hold A Candle - Annabelle Stamps

Hiya bloggers,

Hope you're ready for this weeks Annabelle Challenge.......We're Saying It With Hold A Candle this week. An Annabelle Stamps set that could be used for Birthdays, or maybe even Christmas cards.

I've gone with a Birthday Pop-Up card in nice bright, fun Colors.......What do you think?

I've used the smallest candles for the Bunting which is threaded with Linen thread. The Happy Birthday sentiment, which is popped up on foam dots so that the centre sits a little higher.  The DP has lots of glitter in the stripes so I've just added some Annabelle gems for the required bling.

Now the inside of my card........

I've added one of the larger candles cut it out and set it up for a pop-up feature with the party balloons stamped behind.  

Hope you'll join us again this week.  Your card could be the randomly chosen project this month to win you a $20 shopping voucher to spend in the Annabelle store.  Now how good would that be, especially if you have those Kris Kringle gifts to buy for the crafting friends!!!

Don't have this set yet? OK you can still play, just use another candle image on your card to be entered.

Need more inspiration?  Check out the design teams cards all the links are in the left side bar .

My little challenge to you is to try something you haven't tried before ....... this is my first Pop-Up card and I can't wait to make some more.

My card is entered in the following challenges:

Freshly Brewed - anything goes, optional sketch
Party Time Tuesdays - birthday cards only
Craft Your Passion - anything goes
Paper Players - anything goes

I'll see you soon...........
