Easel Card


Well we wont mention the World Cup..... (ahem)... ;) So sticking to girly stuff, I spent my day sorting through my stash, and making this easel card.  Easel cards are a great way of making sure you dont have any scraps left, and really are so nice to do. 

This card uses one of my favouite Lili of the Valley stamps (I have to get more of these!) and I hand-stitched the panel just behind the image.  I used K&Co Brenda Walton paper, Crafty Bitz flourishes, and punches.

I am entering this card in the below challenges:

Lili of the Valley - Sketch by Dawny
Ooh La La Creations - Flourishes and Pearls
Fab n' Funky - Sew n Sew - I hand stitched the panel
Creative Card Crew - Easel Card
Allsorts challenge - Embossing - I used my bug to emboss the panel behind the Fairy.

Good luck to everyone in these challenges, and thank you so much for looking xx

Goodness - what an unusual colour combination, absolutely stunning. Love the stitiching & all the texture - that houndstooth paper looks tactile. Love the way you colour too - just movement in it. As for the pearls in the flower bouquet.... Have a good week.
much love
