Annabelle With Tree for Wild Rose Studio DT

Good morning to you all, not very often that I get to say this, but wow what a fabulous weekend, I had, hope you all did too.
Here is a little something I created on Saturday before going to my son's for coffee and taking my bundle of fluff Star with me as well as my brother.  We met Matt there too, he had been fishing for the day. We had a lovely evening.  On Sunday we attacked the garden first the flower bed and those weeds and then pressure washed the drive way, wow the garden looks half decent again. Oh forgot to mention on Saturday morning I did cut the grass and strim it too.  You should see the sun tan - ace!!!

Anyway enough of that here is my Wild Rose Studio Design Team inspirational piece.
I made an easel card with the fabulous Annabelle and have taken a shine to these rather large ribbons with the metal running through them, no excuse for it doing what it likes now :)
Base Layers is green card as is the contrast - purchased on a recent spending spree to Which Craft UK in Doncaster with some very special crafting buddies :)
Papers - Annabelle's Christmas - By Wild Rose Studio
Die cuts are some of my new Nesties
Charms from stash.
MS edge punch
Return Sentiment is from a Personal Impressions set from Grimsby Crafts
Image - one of the images within the Annabelle's Christmas Panels Pack
TH distress ink Tumbled Glass
Glossy Accents

Now I have to say that with all the other bits I did this weekend, if it was not for these quick assistance panels, don't think a card would have got made. I added some glitter and some glossy accents to the image just to enhance it, not that it really needed any help from me at all.

Here is a close up of the inner return sentiment.
