Birthday Easel

Evening Folks
Hope you are all well.  So glad it is the weekend.  Had a busy week with work so looking forward to a couple of days rest and relaxation.
I plan on cracking on with some christmas cards tomorrow.  Must really start some christmas shopping too.  I feel like I am so behind but I remember saying that last year lol.  It will all come right in the end.

Anyway, this is a card for my nephews to give their Great Grandma for her birthday in December.  My sister is certainly keeping me busy with orders.

I used some decoupage and papers from the Papermania Lucy Cromwell collection.  I have had this for absolutely ages and this was the appropriate card to use it on.  My spellbinders dies had an outing for the stopper part of the easel.  I just love the lace and pearl trim that I used on top of the pink ribbon.  Really need to get some more of this.

Thanks for popping by and hope you all have a fab weekend.  Welcome to my new followers, I hope you enjoy my blog and I thank you for following me.

What a lovely card! So elegant! I love the pretty butterflies - and I only wish we had a chic watering can like that, ours is a very cheap and manky green plastic one!!

Great Grandma will love it!!
