Say It With...Sentiments

Welcome to a new challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps. It's all about the sentiments.

Still on a Christmas roll I used stamps from the Holly Branch and Ornamental Christmas stamp sets.

I really like the larger sentiments in the Holly Branch set so I used the Merry Christmas sentiment across the card front.

I went with the untraditional holiday colours of turquoise and red. I love these two happy colours together! I made a little window on the card front and have the ornament peeking through from the inside.

It's hard to tell from the photo but the ornament is covered in Glossy Accents for some added shine and I used a bunch of striped hemp twine to add to the Christmasy cheer.

Make sure to stop by the AnnaBelle Stamps blog to see all the lovely creations by the design team.
