Pretty in Pink & Brown ...


I managed to get in some crafty time this morning and as I had seen the twisted easel card around blogland this past week I wanted to give it a go.  And how fun and easy it is!

I coloured up this sweet little Tilda yesterday using pinks and browns and used Bev's fabulous sketch from the Friday Sketchers challenge blog.  The papers are Bo Bunny are just scrummy!  I adore pink & brown together ... and whilst this can be used for a valentine card it can also be an everyday card.  I'm actually sending this to a dear friend of mine whose mom has just been diagnosed with lung cancer - I hope it cheers her up and lets her know I'm thinking of her.


Here's a full view of the twisted easel card.  I used a doily on the bottom panel too with a swirl and 3 cherry blossoms to act as the 'stop'.  The hearts are from an MS punch and the sentiment is SU!.  Ribbon, bling and doilies are from my stash.  I also used the MS French Lace border punch along the middle panel.  My sewing machine also got some exercise today on this card!


Here's a close up of Tilda.  The copic colours used are:-

Skin: - E000, 00, 11,13,21,R20
Hair/Shoes - E25,29,30,34,35
Clothes:- R81,83,85,89

I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Cute Card Thursday - Hearts & Flowers
Papertake Weekly - Have a Heart
Stamp Something Challenge - Something for your Valentine
A Spoonfull of Sugar - Let's see some Love

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are able to leave me a comment to let me know you visited!  Have a wonderful Valentine's Day tomorrow and hope your day is filled with love!

Hugs,
