Celebrate - second GDT card for PTD

Welcome Everyone

It's Monday morning and my second guest designer card for Pear Tree Designs. This week the challenge is Celebration and they are being sponsored by Robyn's Fetish. Robyn is a creator of great digital images and can be found here at Stitchy Stamps and I Did It Creations Crafting Boutique.

As you read this I will be in Swanage with Mum - this post is scheduled but I will have my laptop with me and have access the internet, so I shall be able to keep up with my friends and followers blogs too.

I have made a card to celebrate friendship which could be used for an anniversary.

I seem to really be into easel cards at the moment, and thoroughly enjoyed making this one. I used a sentiment from Raindrop Echoes as the main focal point, but you can see it is a flap and underneath is this -

It is 'Cake' by Robyn's Fetish and I have used it as a digital image, colouring it in Photoshop Elements and adding the sentiment to it before printing it out on paper from the Shabby Princess. I used Nestabilities to cut out the mounts and used pumice stone DI on the edges.

This is the full card leaning back and you can see the space for writing your own words in it. A border using a MS punch has created the 'block' for the easel to stand against and a ribbon and some flowers (edged with DIs and stickles) finish it off. The papers are all from the shabby princess and I also used the victorian velvet DI.

I hope you like the shabby chic look of this one.
