LOTV DT Card & Challenges

Today we see another challenge over at the LOTV Challenge Blog and this week we would like you to make an Easel Card. This is my 8th make and have used colours that I dont think I have ever used on a card before. Pink/Grey are such a great combination so I must used this more often. I've used a sneak peak which is due for release 10th March for the LOTV Shop. Make a note as I think they are going to be just as popular as the last launch.

(Click on photo for a better view)

I've coloured my image with Prismacolour Pencils, Paper Stump & Gamasol. Die cut with Nesties. Papers Magnolia (grey), Blonde Moments (pink). Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, Lace, MS Daisy and Leaf Punches and lots of stickles.

I think Easel cards are so hard to photograph, hard to get the angle and I know others will agree. I normally take at least 30 shots on all different settings.

So hope you can play along with the new challenge. All details can be found on the LOTV Challenge blog and it is NOT necessary to use LOTV products on your card.

Having a quick look, my card also fits in with the following challenges;
Simon Says - mothers day/girly
Lexi's Creations - anything goes
Creative Card Crew - celebrations
Cupcake Craft Challenge - round & round
The chores are done so am treating myself to a lazy day whatever that means!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog and dont forget my candy above.

gorgeous card Claire. Love that image, so cute. I love making easel cards, they are so simple but very effective but as you say can be difficult to photograph but then I'm not very good at taking photos at the best of times!!
