Another Easel Card . . . I feel an addiction starting !

Well I've been back at work for just one day and it feels like I've never been away, lol. 
No work is not that bad really but I have been rather spoilt last week being able to create cards all day.

I have this easel card to show you, that I'm entering into a couple more challenges today.

The Creative Card Crew Challenge "Bloomin Marvelous and the Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge #53 Magnolia/Tilda.

I made her using a similar theme to the Sweet Tilda that I posted yesterday.

She is Tilda with Flowing Hair and I coloured her using the following Copic markers:

Skin: E000; E00; E02 and R11
Hair: E35; E53 and E57
Dress: BV00; BV02; Y21 and YR31
Shoes: BV00; BV02 and C1
Socks: C1
Flowers: V17; BV00 and YG23
Basket: E51, E71 and E77
Shadowline: V000

The paper I used has been in my stash for a long time but it was bought from Kanban originally I think.

The paper lace is from Mrs. Grossman's "Vintage Lace" collection

The punched 'ribbon' is made using a Martha Stewart deep edged punch "Garden Trellis"

The sentiments are from DoCrafts "Daisy and Dandelion" message tags.

The decoupaged paper roses are also from my stash, made a long time ago and waiting for the day that they would be used, lol.  Can't you tell that I've been having a bit of a sort out, ha, ha.

The lilac organza ribbon has been embellished with a bead spacer and a flower and heart charm has been suspended from a fine silver chain.

Well I'm finally getting to grips with the new camera that my husband bought me recently.  The only trouble is that it is so good that my hand trembling now makes a different to the final outcome.  My old camera was very forgiving but now I need to buy a tripod to steady everything, lol.  Two steps forward, one step back, that is always the way with me, ha, ha.

Well time to get back to the crafting desk so that I have something to share with you tomorrow.

Thanks for reading,
