Hello fellow crafters. I hope that you are all keeping well and enjoying the milder weather we have, however, it has gone quite dark and gloomy now and we are to get heavy rain from mid-afternoon onwards.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.

Cuttlebug Mania.  DOWN BY THE SEA.

Creative Card Crew.  Challenge #81.  BIRTHDAY WITH A SENTIMENT.

Everybody Art.  Challenge #313.  MONOCHROME.

Eureka Stamps.  Challenge #129.  BIRTHDAY CARDS.

Get Creative.  Challenge #9.  EMBOSSING.

This is a very different card for me, although it is one of my favourite folds, an Easel Card.
I have kept it to one colour of shades of Blues
I have used an embossing folder called CRACKLE to make the panels on both the top and base. It gives it texture and depth.
My image is from Oak Pond Creations called ANCHOR which I have coloured with Promarkers and mounted onto DARK BLUE PEARLISED CARD, which has also been embossed with the SWISS DOTS FOLDER.
I have used a RIK-RAK STICKY RIBBON. All edges have a SILVER DECORATIVE BORDER  to give shape and definition too.
I have added a DARK BLUE SATIN RIBBON BOW and co-ordinating STARS.
Finally my sentiment reads "WITH LOVE ON YOUR BIRTHDAY".

Thank you very much for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your day and Happy Crafting.
Love Sandra xxx
