Say it in.... and some Exciting news!!

Hidey Ho fellow crafters, I hope your new year celebrations were fabulous and those new years resolutions are still being embraced- mine certainly are!!
Anyhoo, it's Friday yet again and this means it is time for another of AnnaBelle's fabulous challenges!
Saying it in....Black White and Silver

Before we get started with the creative stuff I wanted to share with you some Happy Happy news from AnnaBelle's.... we now have some new teamies- WOOHOO!!  Andrea sure know how to select talent, our newies are Therese from Lost in Paper and Jess from Playing with Paper, make sure you stop in and say Hi!!
Another new comer to the AnnaBelle's team is our Guest Belle for January, Cath Dean from My Creative Oasis, another wonderful addition to the team!!
Along with our challenge for this week the team is introducing some new sets and have some sneaky peaks of some other goodies that may be coming!
For my card I have used the new Garden Silhouettes set and the BBD7 (ooh I looooooove gingham!)
As you will see the sets are very versatile, the Garden Silhouettes has a massive 28 stamps included, and will have your every garden and foliage need covered!  All the sets will be revealled in full on Saturday the 14th of January, but travel around the teams blogs to give you a insight before then!!

I must say that I did struggle with adding in the Silver part of the challenge but did manage to squeeze it in with some silver sprinkles- saved by the sprinkle yet again!!!

If you want to play along too, check out all the details at the end of this post, and give it a whirl!

Additional Goodies:
Cardstock:  Basic Black
Accessories: Versafine- Onyx black, Circle nestabilities

You will find all the links in the side bar!
