Say It With... Love!

It's time for another fun AnnaBelle Stamps challenge! This week the challenge is to 'Say It With Love' in your card. Immediately Lil Bee's Big Flowers came to mind - so cute and I had never inked it up. I also saw this cute folded card and thought it would be fun to have a go - and it was so easy!

First  I used some Scarlet Jewel cardstock for my base with a mat of Sweet Blush. I then used some of my
Gridline cardstock to stamp my background with two images from the Backgrounds By Design 1 set. (Please don't compare the inside layer with the outside layer - I didn't think to make sure that both panel images lined up perfectly and now it sticks out like a sore thumb!!) I used So Saffron and Pretty In Pink for these two colours. The circle was cut with my Spellbinders and embossed before adding my stamped, cut and coloured image tied with twine. To finish off the front, I added some pink striped ribbon, some Glossy Accents to the hearts and some of the gorgeous blossom Sprinkles.
The inside follows the same theme as the front, with the sentiment stamped in Scarlet Jewel ink. Again some sprinkles and hearts were added along with the butterfly punched from Sweet Blush cardstock. The rest of the Design Team have some gorgeous creations - be sure to check them out!
