Easel Card

Have got up this morning feeling worse than yesterday...I hate colds, my nose resembles rudolphs and I sound like Darth Vader breathing.So had my cuppa and headed up to my craft room to take my mind off it, although I sneezed over a piece of card and had to start again....yuk. Haven't made one of these easel cards for ages and I don't know why as they are fun to do. Have made a kids card today and is so appropriate for alot of the boys out there, mine has a gift card holder as you can't give a game playing card without more spends for another game.....can you!!. I embossed the red frame and layered it to look like a picture on a wall of the boy playing with his games console, the image is from Lili of the Valley and the papers I have used are some I've had for ages in my stash. The image has been coloured using h2o's.....makes a change for me.

Challenges are:
Crazy 4 Challenges....paper piercing, mine is on the border across the card.
Our Creative Corner...followed the sketch.
One stop crafts....Sew simple, I've gone for faux stitching effect around the border.
Lili of the Valley.....easel card.

Hugs from Daniele x
