Annabelle Stamps - Say It In Pink, Blue and Chocolate

This weeks AnnaBelle Stamps challenge is to say it in Pink, Blue and Chocolate.......such a great colour scheme.  Hope you'll join in the fun again this week and don't forget, use your AnnaBelle Stamps and post your entry in the AnnaBelle gallery for a chance to be one of our guest designers.
All entries go into the draw to win a Aus $20 shopping trip to the on-line store.

My card uses our January release All Things Grow .....I've seen a few of you make cards with this pretty set......if you haven't got your copy yet click on the link to take you to the store location.

I've used this week's Card Positioning Systems sketch 203 for my card.

I started with a pre folded card topped with some Chocolate American Craft Card.
The pretty top border was a scrap of paper (not sure who's, sorry) it had all the right colours. I added a portion of a Spellbinder die for my sentiment panel which was inked in Chocolate chip.
The pierced bottom portion is another scrap of SU DP with one of the beautiful grasses from the set stamped three times  in Chocolate Chip.

A double punched butterfly set with one of Annabelle Stamps Pear drops and three sprinkles in Blossom, Waterfall and Sultana add the bling.

Here's another one..... this one is for a male, even with the pink card!

I used the PI to cut the shaped for this card......but a couple of Spellbinder dies would work too.
I also used Ida's trick of dying some natural jute using Chocolate Chip ink ... thanks Ida!
The image and sentiment are from Rockin Instrumental and the guitar has been coloured with Prisma's, cut out and given a coat of Dimensional Magic to add some shine.
Those tiny Sprinkles are from the Brown Petals Kit

Need more inspiration?  why not check out the Belles and Bellas blogs. All the links are in the left side bar.

Thanks for dropping by, don't forget to leave me a comment or just say hello.........I'm planning some blog hopping this week end and I'd love to call past your place!

Terrific cards. Love the background paper on card one and how you used the sentiment panel and then stamped a row of the reeds. Very pretty.
Great guy card too and how fun that you dyed your natural twine too.

Have a great weekend.
