Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Hope you are all well on this wet, windy and miserable Wednesday.  It really has turned cold again here in the UK, well, at least where I am in the UK.  

I went to the cinema last night to watch the new Star Trek movie.  Not my choice of film but really enjoyed it.  Was a bit worrried that the film makers would try and change the personalities of the characters from the original series but they didn't.  Overall, a really good film and would recommend it.  Even my daughter, who doesn't normally like anything science fiction, enjoyed it.  
Hopefully, I will get the chance to catch up with some commenting this evening.  Sorry if I have not been by to comment recently.  Things have been a bit busy here.  Sometimes I just wish I could buy a bit of time.  

Anyway, let's get onto the reason I am here.  Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our them for this week is:
Create a step or easel card

We have two sponsors for this challenge:
Stampin Dragon - prize 5 digi images of the winners choice
Stampart Design - prize 5 digi images of the winners choice

Here is my inspiration project using a lovely image from Stampart Design.

I made an easel card and kept the design quite simple.  I framed the image using a lovely die cut frame from Memory Box.  The papers were all scraps (slowly getting down the pile).  The sentiment diecut was a freebie in a magazine.  The little flowers were all made using my punches.  

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your creations.

Fussy and Fancy - Anything goes
QKR Stampede - Spring or pink, yellow and green
Crafts 4 Eternity - Tic Tac Toe (ribbon,scraps,bling)
