Sketch Saturday #137


Hi girls. Glad you could find time to drop in on my blog today. I can only hope that you find something that brings a smile and helps the creative juices while you are here. I hope that you have a great weekend planned and that you get some opportunity to create something for yourself.
My card today was made following the sketch given in the Sketch Saturday challenge. I am cutting it close to making the deadline for this challenge but I hope I can just squeeze in in time.
This is a different take on an easel card. The back mounting card is folded diagonally so that when the from card is mounted it sits across the base at an angle. I have inked up a new Magnolia that I don't know the name of and coloured her using my Copics. The papers are Tim Holtz Shabby Chic and Bazzil to mount. The flowers are home made (it's a while since I made any) and I used a Martha Stewart border punch to make the top right corner and the bottom edge of the top left panel. The pearls are from my stash.

I enjoyed making this card and I hope you like it. Perhaps you might find time to leave me a comment to let me know what you think. I love reading what you say.
Anyway have a good weekend and have fun, stay safe and healthy and enjoy your crafting.

  18. Great take on the easel idea, I saw one on the TV but not figured out how to do it yet! Love the dp you used as it lends itself brilliantly to card design, that corner detail is great too.
