Easel card



I've got the challenge bug!! Whilst browsing this morning, I noticed that Daring Cardmakers and Stamp, Scrap & Doodle both want easel cards for their challenges, so set to work! I came across this lovely cat picture which is a freebie over on Mo Mannings site and decided to use my nesties (and Mum's!) to make a shaped easel card. Green and orange doesn't seem like an obvious colour combination, but it just seemed right once I coloured the cat picture - which is coloured using my chalks! The leaves are from the Sissix flowers, branches & leaves dies and the flowers are an Xcut flower punch. Of course, I had to add a touch of polka dot ribbon in orange. (If you're one of our girls, don't look too closely as we may be making it!)

Challenges I'm entering -
Daring Cardmakers - Easel Does It!
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle challenges - Easel
