Say it in........Blue, Red and White - filled with sprinkles and glitter!

Happy Friday to you all, we have another fabulous AnnaBelle challenge for you to play with and be inspired by!
This week we are saying it in..... Blue, Red and White

After playing along with Robyn's Christmas Card Challenge last year, I know how much easier it is to survive Christmas when your cards are well under way early in the year.  But I have missed the deadline for this one, but a fabulous way to get inspired none the less!!

Another wonderful reason to play along is that our fellow AnnaBelle Awesome Bella Kerry is on their DT team

I just loooooooove the tree from this set, well it is all dots after all!!
I have used the 6mm, 4mm and 3mm sprinkles

The tutorial for this card from our own very talented Andrea, following the tutorial, this was eeeeeeeasy to make- I wish I had taken the plunge yonks ago.  You too can check it out here...

The Recipe:
Stamps: Jewelled Tree (AnnaBelle Stamps),  Tree Trimming Trio- trunk (PTI)
Cardstock: Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Stamper's Select White
Ink: Real Red
Paper: American Crafts Polka Dots
Accessories: Chilli Mini sprinkles, Turquoise 6mm sprinkles, Icicle 3mm sprinkles, 9mm Stripe-Red ribbon,  Sparkle n soft- Twinkling Clouds, Bling star
