Christmas Easel

Good morning to you ...

The rain is still falling in the UK ... It was estimated that a month's rain fell yesterday alone ... causing more misery for so many people and freezing temperatures are now being forecast ...
Nature can be incredibly beautiful ... but also a force to be reckoned with...

I hope you are ready for a new challenge at City Crafter where we have the lovely Linda hosting for us ... Linda is asking that we make a Christmas easel card ... Simple right?
This week we have LeAnne as our Guest Designer ... a very worthy winner from week 127 ... Please pop over and leave her some love ..

I chose to use the soft grey paper from Astrid ... I did warn you that you would be seeing this paper and colour combination again ... Not traditional I know but colours I really love together


The lilac coloured paper is from my supplies ... just from a pad of rainbow papers bought at a £1 store to which I added glitter before I adhered it to the card


The lovely ribbon is from The ribbon Girl .. pearls and crystal from my supplies


The sentiment is a WaltzingMouse stamp ... embossed with silver embossing powder and the star was cut on my big shot using a sizzix die


I do hope you can join us this week ... I'm really looking forward to seeing what you come up with ... 

Have yourselves a wonderful day wherever you are
Thanks for stopping by 

~ Ros ~

I agree with your sentiments about the floods and the weather. My heart also goes out to those who are suffering so much. It's always the same people every time.
Thanks for all your advice and tips and what a pretty easel card you have made.

I love your easel card, Ros. Such pretty soft colours and papers. I love the designs on your panels! Gorgeous card!

I didn't go to bed until 4 a.m. and the rain was relentless. It has just stopped in the past hour. Fortunately, we are high up, but it's heartbreaking to see all these poor people having to leave their homes and lose their possessions. They are putting on a brave face, but it must be soul destroying x

Fabulous card Ros, so delicate and frilly!

lauren bergold said...

one quick glance was all i needed to see about 15 ideas i want to try: punched borders as side panels to a design, using bright white backed with a strong but soft color, dimensional glitter as the "engineering" for the easel card, BIG central bow... as always, i can learn MUCH from you missus, and your ♥STUNNING♥ card!!!

LeAnne said...

You know: I think every color might work as long as the design is as beautiful as yours usually are! It's a gorgeous card.
