AnnaBelle Stamps Sketch #30

Time for our monthly bling sketch challenge.  Here's the sketch:

and here's my card:

I used stamps from the new Santa's Star set, and did some simple masking to put the tree behind the little birdie. I drew in some floor boards around the bottom of the images to ground them, and used a couple of the snowflakes to make more background.  The images are stamped in black, and the snowflakes in grey. Papers are Basic Grey.

The Sprinkles I used came from the Gypsy mix, and were put in place with some funky new stuff called Embellie Gellie.  You pop it onto the end of a stick, and it helps pick little things up so you can place them wherever they're needed. Makes things so much easier for someone with big man hands LOL.

To add a little extra sparkle, I went over the tree, gift and little hat with my clear Spica pen. The sparkle is so delicate, it needs to be seen to be believed.  Here's a close up, but I don't think photography does it justice:

If you'd like to join us this month with your version of the sketch, pop over to the AnnaBelle Stamps blog for details.  You don't need to own any AnnaBelle Stamps to participate, and the best bit is you could win yourself a wonderful AnnaBelle prize.

Thanks for stopping by!

ETA: after a little visit from Samantha, I've added this to the ABC Christmas Challenge blog.  The theme is T for Tree, so this cards fits in beautifully!
