Take it easel

Evening all,

The sun has been shining today so I have been out doing a little bit of gardening. When I say little I really do mean little as I just planted a plant we bought yesterday and pulled a few weeds out of the path. But it was nice to be in the sun.

I have a little easel card to share with you today so here it is:

The cute little image is from Tiddly Inks and she is coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I still need to work on the Flexmarkers as they are a bit different from Promarkers but the colours are lush. I have gone for bright with this one, not sure where the colour choice came from but it popped into my head so I gave it a go. The teal paper is from a papermania collection and the green paper is from my stash. I have then added some bright green and pink ribbon, both were freebies from magazines. The little flowers are punched using my petal punch out of glitter paper and I have added a candi to each centre. I have used my spellbinders die to cut a space for writing on the base and used a metal Happy Birthday sentiment on the top. I have added some more Candi, some buttons and a bow to finish off.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Passion For Promarkers - Photo Inspiration - Bright colours and ribbon
