absc016 - Easter Blessings

Hello!  Are you ready for another Annabelle Sketch?  Well the wait is over...here is the newest Annabelle Sketch absc014 - Isn't it fun!  I really liked this sketch and hope you do as well.
While summer is winding down in Australia it's still winter here in the USA and while we've had a pretty mild one here where I live there are plenty of people in the mid-west and back east that have had more then their fair share of SNOW and WINTER.  So for my card today I chose to use some brighter, cheery colors to help brighten things up for those longing for spring.
The stamp set I used today is called, (Flowers for You) and features a number of floral images, several vases and sentiments as well.  Since Daffodils are one of my flowers in spring I chose the for my card.  I paired everything up with my patterned paper from the Lemonade collection by Basic Grey.  I paper pieced the vase and sponged in some color around the flowers.  Then I added a bit of sparkle with my "Quickie Glue Pen" and some Baby's Breath Glitter (Art Institute).  For my "bling" I used 2 sizes of the gorgeous Blossom Sprinkles.  The ribbon was a little "thank you" from an order I had placed at Ellen Hutson's store.  It went so well with my colors I just had to use it.

Now don't forget to stop by the Annabelle Blog and check out what the other DT members have done with this fabulous sketch and don't forget to try it yourself and leave a link (Mr. Linky) so we can check it out too.
