absc12 - Just Because

Welcome to the newest Annabelle Sketch Challenge.  Isn't this a "fun" sketch.  I wasn't able to participate in last weeks sketch challenge so I'm happy that I was able to get a card ready for this week.  For my card I used 3 of the newest Annabelle Stamp Sets.  The flowers are from:  Floral Stems (ABS014), The sentiment is from: Flowers With Love (ABS016) and the border/bling is from: Build-a-Bling (ABS012). 

What's great about the Build-a-Bling stamp set is that you can use them as a "guide" for adding your bling but you can also use them for creating unique borders or mix and match them with the bling like I've done here on this card.

In keeping with one of my goals this year to use up my patterned paper I'm once again using the patterns seen in this post:

I love how bright and cheery the colors look and the sparkle on the DCWV paper is just wonderful. 

Don't forget to stop by the other DT members blogs and the Annabelle Blog and leave everyone some comment "lovin" because it's always nice to hear that you like what you are seeing.
