It's that time again when we have an Annabelle Stamps Bling and Sketch Challenge (keyword ABSC016).This week enter your card for your chance to win one of my FAVOURITE stamp sets.
I have designed this nice easy sketch for you.

Now for my card.

For this card I have used the 'Swirl Tree' set. First I stamped the tree in Black Brilliance ink and coloured with watercolour crayons.I then cut it out using the classic circle nestabilities.
To create the printed rectangle layer, I stamped one of the small swirls randomly with Colorbox 'Creamy Brown' chalk ink. I stamped the sentiment onto a small scrap piece of white card.
The card stock I chose is Bazzill Criss Cross in both the light brown and black.
Using the nestabilities again, I cut a plain brown circle and a black scalloped circle. Then I cut the rectangle layering pieces in the same colours. 'Thinking of you' was simply mounted on the black card.
The finishing touches are the co-ordinating black/brown ribbon and the Sprinkles  in metallic black.
If you like bling (and what girl doesn't) the sprinkles are just gorgeous BUT the metallic black, metallic cocoa and silver are to DIE for.

Would you like to see some cards made with the stamp set we are giving away to one lucky stamper.

This set is called 'I can Fly'

Don't forget to get you card made and link it up at the Annabelle Stamps Blog.
We would like you (where possible) to use Annabelle Stamps but if you have not got any yet, that's fine too. You have 2 weeks
