AnnaBelle Stamps Bling Sketch Challenge ABSC035

Hi there!
Third time lucky - I have tried to post this card three times and have had all sorts of trouble for some reason, so after taking a couple of hours for the whole process, I won't be listing all the steps for this card as I'm tired!
This week its time for another AnnaBelle Stamps Sketch Challenge over at the AnnaBelle Stamps blog. Here it is:
This was a challenge for me as my ideas kept changing trying to get all the elements to work.

The image I used for this card is from Helen's Party which is such a fun set to play with. This card has taken me out of my comfort zone as I don't usually go for bright colours and it doesn't feel as clean as I would usually like, but its fun to try new things.

The inside also uses the sentiment and flower image from the same set. Be sure to check out the rest of the design team's blogs to see their cards:

To go into the draw to win a $20 gift voucher to spend at the AnnaBelle stamps store or have a chance to be a guest designer, you can see all the details over at the AnnaBelle Stamps blog. Looking forward to seeing your creations!
