My first Easel card!

Good morning!  It's time for a new challenge over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and with all the gorgeous new releases last month we are totally spoilt for choice with images!

Our challenge this month is to create an Easel or a Shaped or a Step card.... none of which I had done previously, so it's a challenging challenge for me!  Of course, if you use a Little Miss Muffet Stamps image then you don't have to stick to the challenge theme... you can submit a creation using the theme Anything Goes!  Do head over to the challenge blog to check out the fabulous inspiration from my fabulous teamies!

I decided to go with an Easel card for my card today:

I used the lovely Agent Eclair and the Bicycle from the Little Miss Muffet Paris Release as well as co-ordinating door and bricks from Make it Crafty and sentiment stamp from Whimsy Stamps.  The fancy chipboard frame for the sentiment is also from Make it Crafty.  The chipboard rose and cherries are from Crate Paper.  The papers are from Cosmo Cricket.  The lace is from the Ribbon Girl.  I have coloured the image with copics (see details below).  /I also coloured the pearls red with my copics.

Here's a close-up:

And here are the copics I used:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Little Darlings Challenges: Pearls
My Mum's Craft Shop: Spring colours
The Paper Shelter: Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly: Anything Goes

We hope you can join us this fortnight!
