Multi Challenge Easel Card


Boy is it cold outside and down to -5 on the school run. Way too cold to be going out today so gonna get the house in order and wrap some pressies then hopefully find a slot for an hours crafting, had no time over last few weeks. Christmas sure is a busy time for all.


I coloured this gorgeous Magnolia image a few weeks ago, just not found any time to do anything with it. Coloured with Copics and Derwent Colorsoft, I chose to do another easel as these are my favourite and took the sketch from this weeks Friday Sketchers. Papers are BG and Magnolia. Made a scroll with a scrap of paper and ditressed the edges and added Stickles. MS Border Punch down the side with a trim of lace. A mix of embellishments, and lots of stickles and for once I remembered to use one of my many charms, I like the Christmas Tree!

And what with it being Christmas, this card meets Lots of challenges


Well I hope you are all organised for Christmas. Only a few day before the children break so I'm gonna be a busy bee over the next few days.
Take Care and Thanks For Looking!
