Happy Birthday Mum

Here I am back with my second post today and as promised my candy has been posted. I wanted to make a picture with all the logos and candy included and after trying to do it in blogger and getting very frustrated as the individual pics kept moving every time I added one I resorted to Photoshop and impressed myself by being able to do, with a purple background too (pats herself on back, lol).

This is my card for my Mum's Birthday using one of the Simply Sassies from Sugar Nellie. I haven't made a twisted easel card for ages. I try to make a different shaped card for my Mum each time as she really likes them. This image reminds me of myself in the 60s. though I was never that thin. I sometimes find it hard to keep the front page down properly. Hubby came in and said put something heavy in the bottom right hand corner and that will help to hold it down and of course he was right, it stays perfectly in place. Papers are First edition Desert Bloom. I don't think I have ever used this colour combo before but I really like it. I used Promarkers for colouring and added some shine with a Sakura glaze pen.I used an MS border punch, Wild Orchid roses and some more of those geometric buttons from Crafty Emma's. I've just ordered some more of these along with some scrummy papers which are in the clearance sale.

Challenges:
The Sugar Bowl Great sketch which I continued on the base of the card
Bunny Zoe Easel cards
I love Promarkers Easel cards
Stamptacular Fancy folds

Hope you all have a good weekend. The weather has been perfect today so hope it lasts as we are doing a car boot stall tomorrow. I'm scheduling my Totally Gorjuss card for tomorrow.
