Hello and good morning on this wonderful day.
The card I would like to show you this morning is being entered into the following challenges.

4 krafty girlz  Challenge #26.  ANYTHING GOES.

Cards Galore.  Challenge #9.  MAKE A CARD.

This is another of my favourite style of card. For this Easel card, I have used a mixture of card and paper. The background SPOTTED paper is from MY MINDS EYE-BRIGHT DOTS COLLECTION.
The panels have been made using paper from the ME TO YOU-WITH LOVE paper pad, all have been mounted on RED or BLACK card, and all edges have a SILVER DECORATIVE BORDER to highlight and add definition too.
My image is from BUGABOO STAMPS and is called DOTTIE BIRTHDAY which has been coloured with promarkers and then positioned on the top part of the card.
To complete the top, I have embossed a White Disc and embossed it with SWISS DOTS folder, then positioned it in the corner, onto which I added a Martha Stewart 3D punched WATER LILY with a WHITE PEARL FLOWER in the centre and RED GEMSTONES on alternate petals. I have used the D-Lites SPRIGS for the foliage.
The sentiment reads:
Finally I added two SILVER LUREX BOWS.

For the base I made a LAYERED PANEL using Black card, Red Holographic paper, then I punched a strip of SILVER MIRROR CARD using the Martha Stewart CLOUDY HEARTS punch.
Onto this I placed a DOUBLE LAYERED punched and embossed BUTTERFLY  with BLACK GEMSTONES for the body and along the Silver Border.

Thank you very much for coming to visit. Happy crafting.
