Its challenge day at My time to Craft

Hi Blog friends

Today is challenge day at My Time to Craft and the theme for this fortnight is

Make an Easel Card

I'm not big on easel cards and haven't made one for ages but I did enjoy making this card and I might just do it again soon. I think the only thing about easel cards is that not everyone (as in non crafters!) knows what to do with them. 

I made this card for my daughters birthday - her birthday is actually today - Happy birthday Alison.  Not that she'll be reading this because she's gone to Centre Parks in the Lake District for the week with her husband and little baby son, to celebrate her birthday (today) her husbands birthday (also today) and their wedding anniversary (also today) !!! 

I got some new papers through the week and just love them.  As soon as I saw this one - its sunkiss from prima - I knew what I was going to do with this card, isn't it great when that happens - certainly gets the mojo going

This is what I did

Papers - Sunkiss by prima
Stamp - Pretty bouquet by Lili of the Valley
Coloured with - Copics and Prismacolor pencils
Scalloped card - craftwork cards

Charm - a little complementary charm I got in a lovely little bag from My crafty heart  - ah thanks
Sentiment -  with Paintbox poppets from Crafters Companion

Ribbon - Carnmeal Cottage
pearls from my stash
