Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge - Friday 28 February 2014 - Easel card

It is time for another challenge over at the Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge Blog.  This fortnight the challenge is "easel card".

The rules for the Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge are as follows:
  • Please use a stamped/digital image on your card/project 
  • Please DO NOT link back to old projects- only new cards/projects are considered for the prize. 
  • Although we would love you to only use Sweet Pea images it is not compulsory. 
  • If you use a Sweet Pea Stamps image you will be entered into a second draw to win three Sweet Pea Stamps digital stamps. The Design Team for that fortnight will pick their favourite card/project using a Sweet Pea Stamps image. 
  • Please do not enter the challenge more than 3 times. 
What are the prizes for this challenge you might ask??  Lynette over at Sweet Pea Stamps kindly sponsors this challenge every fortnight.

Random. org will be used to pick the first winner and they will win $6 Sweet Pea Stamps digital stamps of their choice.

The second winner will be picked by the Design Team from those that used a Sweet Pea Stamps image and they will win $9 Sweet Pea Stamps digital stamps of their choice.
 For my card I have used the Sweet Pea Stamps image by Conie Fong called "The Arrival of Spring".  This is available as a digital stamp and a rubber stamp.  
I have coloured the image in with my Graph'it pens using some more purple shades that I got for Christmas.  They are such easy pens to use.  I wanted to keep the colour scheme very Spring-like. 

The backing papers I have used were from a set a friend bought me for Christmas.  I have finished the card off with various die-cuts (doily, butterfly, grass and made some die-cut flowers from some scraps of backing papers, inked around the edges and pearl brads for the centres), ribbon bow, pearl embellishment, gems, Craftwork Cards sentiment and quite a bit of Stickles glitter glue.

Card Mania - Use a sentiment
Kaboodle Doodle - Use ribbon
