Mother's day card!!!

This is a card I have made for my own mum. I really liked the mischevious kitten image and I think she will too. I am still experimenting with new layouts and colours as I don't want my stuff to look too samey. I am going to enter this into as many challenges as I can find. This is only the second easel card I have ever made too.

Image was a free digital image by motivet coloured in with Promarkers. I also used a little gold pearlescent chalk around the image so it didn't look too flat and a little pink pearlescent chalk on the flower (It's probably more noticable in real life) I also used glossy accents on the eyes and nose.
Papers are from Summer Driggs "Angel Mother" free downloadable kit - Inks used to distress the edges
Yellow and chocolate textured card from DCWV
Brown crochet ribbon from quixotic
Yellow ribbon, fabric flowers and diamantes from stash
Sentiment done on computer - font is scriptina which is one of my favourites!

I am entering this into the following challenges:-

Craft - ribbons and sparkle
Magical crafts - something for mum
Crafty creations - dimension
Cute card thursday - ribbon-tastic

  6. This is lovely Paula, a really sweet image and I love easel cards. Spyder is right about linking challenges on your post, I think some challenges won't accept an entry if there is not a link to them on the post. And of course we all like to see if there is a challenge we can enter too!

  10. Yay!!! I've just managed to link up all the challenges to the originating site all by myself Lol. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be as I am a bit of a technophobe :o) I think I've remembered all the ones I entered - if I've missed an odd one off then I'm sorry but it was a bit of nightmare back-tracking!!!
