Congratulations Easel!

Must add a post tonight before I crawl off to bed! Soooooo tired!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not sure why - although it may have something to do with me feeling rather sorry for myself at the moment!
You see I spent over an hour yesterday in the dentist's chair! And today it feels as if a bus has crashed into my jaw - I'm so glad I was awake having the filling or I'd think someone had used my chin as a punch bag! YES it was ONLY a filling - but a BIG one! and seeing as I hate going to the dentist I feel quite proud of myself, Mr Dentist must really like me - cos he wants me to go see him for another hour in 4 weeks time!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Anyway, onto today's card.....

I've made another easel card tonight! I've used one of my new arrivals from WOJ - I've been after this stamp of Willow with Baby for ages (although I'm sure I spent longer with a drill in my mouth yesterday!).
I've coloured her with my Water colour pencils (Please don't look too closely as I didn't use the right ink to stamp her so my painting has smudged the ink a little) and then heat embossed the whole piece with Holographic powder.

The Papers are from DCWV Nana's Nursery. The baby details are printed onto the bottom plaque and it's all finished off with some punched flowers, ribbon and a pair of feet charm.

I'd like to enter this into 2 challenges today....

  14. I just love your easel cards...very pretty. I haven't made any cards in a while due to health issues but I have colored quite a few images. I would like to try and make an easel card though-would you happen to have the template for it or can you direct me to a tutorial. It would be greatly appreciated.
