Hello everyone on this bitterly cold day. We have had the snow and every other type of weather, and now we have got the wind and the rain is just starting, oh happy days.

The card I have to show you now has just given me hours of pleasure and I have thoroughly enjoyed myself.. As people who know me can tell you, that EASEL CARDS are one of my all-time favourites to do, I don't know why, I just have so much fun and relaxation from creating them, so I really hope that you will like this card too.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Fussy and Fancy.  Challenge #131.  THINGS WITH WINGS. (Butterfly and Dragonflies)


Fab n Funky.  Challenge #243.  BUTTON IT.   (Centres of the Flowers)

City Crafter.  Challenge #245.  OH FEATHERS. (Purple with the Foliage)

Most of the papers for this card have come from either the
Forever in Time PURPLE PASSION PAD or the First Edition DREAMCATCHER PAD
I have also used in the making of this, PLAIN & PEARLISED CARD STOCK.
My image is from Sassy Studio Designs called SHOWGIRL which has been coloured with Promarkers.
All edges have a SILVER CHAINLINK BORDER to highlight and add definition too.
The border panel on the base has been made by using the Martha Stewart OPTIC DOT PUNCH.
I have used the Spellbinders CLASSIC SCALLOPED SQUARE DIE on the top using a
The larger SPOTTED FLOWER is the Martha Stewart 3D WATER LILY PUNCH.All the smaller flowers have been made and layered using the SMALL DAISY PUNCH. Each FLOWER has a BUTTON for the centre.
The foliage has been made using the Spellbinders JEWELLED FANTASIES DIES.
To complete the look I have added TWO DRAGONFLIES and the sentiment says

Thank you very much for coming to visit, I hope that you like my card. Take care and stay safe and warm.
Happy crafting.
Love Sandra xxx
