AnnaBelle Stamps - Challenge Friday - ac052

Hello, welcome to AnnaBelle Stamps Challenge this week.  Andrea has a sketch for us and the DT have been asked to use one of two of her beautiful Christmas sets, Christmas Scene Baubles or Gifted Swirls.

Play along by adding your card to the ABS Blog for your chance to win the set: Christmas Scene Baubles.  You can 'post' your project to the gallery at   Stamp, Embellish, Create if you don't have a blog.  Add the Tag absc052 to your card though ........ so we can find it!

I've played with the sketch a bit for my card but I'm pretty happy with the result.  Using the PI die cutter I drew a hexagon and repeated it to cut the six shapes from a piece of coloured card stock.
I lightly marked the position of the cut outs on the white base card.
The images and  sentiments were positioned within the marked spots with the aid of a stamp-a-ma-jig.  A die cut loopy border and some ABS black/white striped ribbon was added to the cut work card before popping up over the stamped base card with foam dots.  
Three 4mm plum Sprinkles add the required bling!

Check in with the Belles for more inspiring cards this week........Links under the DT tab at the top of my page.

I'm entering this card in the following awesome challenges this week:
