I have already entered the monthly sketch challenge over at Annabelle stamps. However a package arrived the other day and I just had to try out the contents so here is another entry 🙂 So what was in the package? The amazing stamp set I had won on the Annabelle blog hop, its simply stunning, I love it! Its called All things Grow. Andrea very kindly included some samples of their sprinkles and their new twisted paper cord.
I kept my card uber simple, I wanted the stamps to do all the talking. I did use some of the paper cord to edge my sentiment with. The cord is fabulous stuff, I thought it would be a nightmare trying to glue it down around the edge of a small slip of paper but it worked like a dream. I inked the grass and the butterflies in green ink and used the large green sprinkles for my bling. I couldn’t resist adding some of the teeny sprinkles to the bodies of the butterflies also 🙂
I couldn’t leave it at just the one card when I was creating last night though, I had some scraps again so I did a quick emboss resist with the grass. The butterflies look so cute on the blue sky. Dont you just love that sentiment? I tend to make a lot of book markers and I have to say the paper cord works so much better than ribbon through the hole at the top. It stays in place much better, I am a convert!!
Thanks so much for me new goodies Annabelle stamps, both my prize set and the other stuff I purchased, I am super happy with it all 😀
PS: I am also entering the card over at the Wild Orchid Challenge blog where they want to see a sentiment on your work!
