Today we are featuring the set - Acacia which is such and elegant and pretty set to work with:

Not only is the image such a great design, but there are so many wonderful sentiments that can be used for a number of occasions. Here is my card:

I started with a Kraft base  with two corners rounded and used a scallop pattern from Backgrounds By Design 4 to stamp along the bottom in Versamark ink. I then added a lemon layer which was edged with my Apron Lace border punch. The Acacia image was then stamped on white cardstock with Tuxedo Black ink and coloured in with Copics. Finally I added some lemon spotted ribbon with my sentiment from Acacia stamped in Old Olive ink.

On the inside I stamped my sentiment also from Acacia in Old Olive ink and added a strip of Kraft and lemon cardstock along the bottom. This was all matted on to some more lemon cardstock.
Now be sure to add your comment to the inlinkz tool below for your chance to be in the draw for this fortnight's blog hop prize and then head on back to the AnnaBelle Stamps blog to finish!
