My AnnaBelle Stamps Debut! ABSC048

I'm absolutely THRILLED to be able to announce that I'm joining the AnnaBelle Stamps Design Team!  If you haven't visited AnnaBelle Stamps before, you're in for a real treat.  :-)  It's an Australian owned stamp company who have their own range of clear photopolymer stamps, as well as a range of gorgeous embellishments, card stock and accessories.  And the AnnaBelle Stamps Design Team is so talented!  Make sure you check out the AnnaBelle Stamps Blog to see what I mean.  :-)

The challenges vary at AnnaBelle Stamps, and this week's challenge ABSC48 is a sketch:

And here's what I came up with...

I black embossed the pattern from Backgrounds By Design 2 and then used Kindyglitz Gem Clear to glue some Turquoise Sprinkles in the open circles of the pattern.  It's the first time I've used Kindyglitz to glue gems in place, and I love it!  I also black embossed the sentiment from Love Birds.

Another thing that I love about AnnaBelle Stamps is their fantastic new forum - Stamp Embellish Create.  It's a free online community sharing ideas, techniques, tutorials and projects...

Just a note - the challenges usually run for one week, but this one will be running for TWO weeks because of Easter next week.  I can't believe it's nearly Easter already!

I'm also entering this card in the Simon Says Anything Goes challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and a HUGE thank you to the AnnaBelle Stamps DT for such a warm welcome!
