Today is the start of our new fortnightly challenge at
the theme is
the DT have created some amazing easel cards please do take time to have a look they are truly awesome.
For my DT card I have made an easel/gatefold card, I saw a sample of one on Create and Craft and decided to have ago.
I have used gold satin mirri card as the base, the papers and image are from Yesterday Memories CD, available from OLLCB,  I embossed the gatefold section with my Hougie board before adhering to the main easel card, I have added lace, gingham ribbon, gems and flowers.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
This is the inside of the gatefold card 
My second card is quite simple and full of Spring colours, I have used a new clear stamp that i bought recently from C&C it was a pack of 3 mini stamps featuring the Forever Friends Bear.
I stamped this one with Momento ink then coloured with Copics, I mounted the image and gingham paper onto pink linen card, I added some gingham card candy, ribbon, flower lace and flower gems, I used Viva Decor for the centre of the flower lace and gems. 
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Many thanks for visiting my blog I do hope you like what you have seen and please do come back soon.
