Say It With Flowers...@ Annabelle Stamps

Hi Everyone... I hope you're all enjoying your Good Friday.   It is a lovely sunny day in Cape Town and the roads are quiet, which is a good thing!  Had lunch with my folks before trekking all the way back home again, as I want to get some crafting done. Tomorrow is going to be a hectic day again... taking Mom to the hairdresser and then doing their shopping, taking Kendall to the Bargain Book store (she can open her own store with all the books she has accumulated...lol)... so my time is not really my own over the weekends, that's why I value it so much ;) 

Why not pop over to the Annabelle Stamps Blog to take part in their challenge for this week which is Say It With Flowers.  Here's my little creation, hope you like it as much as I do!

The base of this card is black and the lovely DP is from the Stacy Claire Boyd collection. My last piece I think.  Onto that I matted a lovely lilac cuttlebugged paper, having used the Swiss Dots, which I like so much.  The image is a new stamp from a local SA company. Had to use some glitter to give it a bit of pizzaz! Finally, some ribbon and a bow to soften the whole look and of course for elegance, some pearls.

Take care until next time, hugs Sharon

Hi Sharon. Wow, your card is so pretty!! I have always liked that stamp. I opened my stamp drawer to see if I had it (I don't!), and thought, I have so many stamps that I haven't even used yet!! Sorry to hear you are so busy. I have family visiting this weekend, so I also will not be doing too much crafting. Speak to you soon. Hugs, Rene' (did you manage to order some border stamps?)

This is a very pretty card Sharon! Your 'local' stamp is a wonderful focal point too!
Thanks for taking the Annabelle Stamps Challenge, hope we get to see lots more of your gorgeous cards.
