Annette Allen is here today with another great card showing off some beautiful Dear Lizzy products from American Crafts! What’s not to love about the combination of beautiful colors and trendy elements like feathers and burlap?

In Annette’s own words, here’s a bit about her design:

I just love the 5th and Frolic collection by Dear Lizzy from American Crafts! This collection is full of fun designs and great embellishments. I love the already added buttons and gems not to mention the different fabric textures. This collection really wowed me and I enjoyed putting this card together!

Supplies | Patterned Paper: Dear Lizzy (5th & Frolic). Embellishments:  Dear Lizzy (5th and Frolic). Stamps:  Papertrey Ink  (Fillable Frames #5). Ink: Tsukineko Memento (Tuxedo Black). Adhesives:  3M (Scotch Advanced Tape Glider), American Crafts (foam adhesives). Designer: Annette Allen

Annette started card making in 1997, when a neighbor invited her to a Stampin’ Up! party while she was living in Germany. She has since started a blog and taken part in many design teams.
