C.R.A.F.T Challenge - Easel Cards

1st Post of the Day


Morning :)  Back again with my first post of the day sharing my GDT card for C.R.A.F.T Challenge, but first of all I would like to thank everyone who joined in on the blog-hop and stopped to visit me on the way :)  The winners have now been drawn and are announced on the challenge site, so dont forget to check to see if you have won. :)

Todays new theme is a real favourite of mine (except when it comes to photographing them! lol) - we would like to see your  'Easel Cards' this week, and we are sponsored by The Stamping Boutique, Crimson Cloud and the brilliant Bugaboo Stamps!  Excellent prizes, so I hope you find time to play along.


For my card, I used one of my oldest Bugaboo stamps from the Sunbonnets Collection called Fancy Flowers.  I love these images, and they are such a doddle to colour in!

I layered beige and white bazzil card and hand-stitched MME papers.  The dies are a mix of Memory Box and Spellbinders, and the butterfly punches are MS.  I coloured my image with my trusty PM's, and added Prima flowers and pearls from stash.  The smaller roses are ebay.


I am entering this card in the below competitions:

 
Die-Ing for a Challenge  - Gorgeous Sketch!
Creatilicious Challenges - Bingo - Easel Card, Ribbon, Butterflies
Papertake Weekly - In The Garden
Crafts & Me - Pearls and Lace

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and please check back a little later for my 2nd post!

Sandra (Stamping For Pleasure) said...

WOW . . . that's a STUNNER x

Paula (PEP) said...

That is quite striking with the coffee & white combination. Those pearls really give such super luxury & your colouring of the little image has made it positively glow. I've not had much chance to play with my Edgeabilities yet so was intrigued when I saw what you've done with yours. Love the inked edges of the butterfly - softening it beautifully & allowing it to 'against' the main panel.
