Good morning on this wet and breezy morning, I hope that you are all well.

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

Through the Purple Haze.  Challenge #83.  ANYTHING GOES.

The Paper Shelter.  Challenge #196.  BLOOMING.

Crafty Gals Corner.  Challenge #12.  ANYTHING GOES.

Get Creative.  Challenge #11.  MUST USE A DIE-CUT.

Digi Choosday.  Week #12. LOTS OF LAYERS.

Yes, I know, another EASEL CARD but it really is one of my favourite designs, so I do apologise.

I have used Designer Papers from my stash, which I have to add is getting larger by the day, I just love papers, hahaha.
All edges have a SILVER DECORATIVE BORDER to highlight and add definition too.
My image is from the PAPER SHELTER and is called SPRING SWING. It has been coloured with Promarkers and then double-mounted onto LILAC & WHITE CARD
For the top part, I then made a DOUBLE-LAYERED BORDER PANEL using LILAC & DEEP PURPLE card. The Lilac has then been embossed with the SWISS DOTS folder, and then both layers have been punched down all edges with the Martha Stewart BUBBLEBATH punch. I have also made the same for the bottom panel.
To complete the top, I have die-cut a D-Lites TIGER LILLIES. I have added co-ordinating FLOWERS with ROSEBUDS  for the centres. The foliage si made using GLITTERED AND EMBOSSED PAPER from my scrap box using the Spellbinders FOLIAGE die. I have completed the top by adding an ACETATE BUTTERFLY and a LILAC SATING BOW.

To complete the base, it has co-ordinating FLOWERS and a MANY THANKS topper with flowers.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you like what you see.
Happy crafting to you all and have a great day.
Love Sandra xxx
