TOMIC - challenge # 5



Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend. TOMIC challenge # 5 starts today and our theme for this week is to make an easel card, I love easel cards so I had to join in :). There's lots of inspiration from my DT friends  so I hope you can join us and of course there's a wonderful prize to be won from Magnolia for our randomly chosen winner and the chance to be one of our top 5 and a guest designer spot going to first place....more reasons to join in :).

I've used the sweet Magnolia Tilda in rubber boots, she's coloured with pencils and cut out. My easel card was made using a nestabilities labels die, I've used the gorgeous DooHickey dies 'heart swirl branch', 'peony petals' and 'swirly butterfly' and one of the new Magnolia  6 x 6 pretty papers. There's lots of stardust stickles and some hand dyed ribbon and some rolled roses to decorate.

Enjoy your day :).
