Say It In Pink, Blue and Chocolate

Hi there,
I am here today with a great colour challenge that Andrea has over at the AnnaBelle Stamps blog - Pink, Blue and Chocolate. What a great colour combo!!

I decided to keep my card quite clean and simple this time, starting with a Bashful Blue base, run through my Cuttlebug with my Linen Impression plate. I used the dotted border from the Backgrounds By Design 1 set from AnnaBelle Stamps to repeatedly stamp my blue dotted background and adhered some chocolate ribbon along the top. I then stamped my sentiment from the Ballerina Rose set and punched this out. matting it on some Chocolate Chip cardstock. I also stamped the flowers from the same set and coloured these in with my Copics, before cutting out and adding to the card. Some AnnaBelle Blossom Sprinkles were added to the flower centres to complete the front.

On the inside, I stamped another sentiment from the Ballerina Rose set and added some more flowers and sprinkles along the bottom on top of my dotted border strip. It was nice for a change to make a card that is more simple - I am really happy with the result.

Here are the links for the rest of the design team. Hop on over and have a look - they have some wonderful creations.
