Create with Connie and Mary challenge 260

Hi Everyone,

There is a special double challenge at Create with Connie and Mary that I wanted to play with.

It's both Colour and the sketch below

CCMC260...SPECIAL 2 Week Color AND Sketch Challenge

CCMC260A         CCMC260B
I'm quite partial to the new In Colours and I love a shaped card too.  Today I've made an Easel Card using the Deco Label Framelits with the Mosaic Embossing Folder which I've inked on the inside with Calypso Coral Ink onto the Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock.  I'ved added a smaller panel cut with the Deco Labels from Whisper White card and embossed with Fancy Fan Embossing folder.  This is the base for my Leaves (Little leaves die) and Simply Pressed Clay flowers.

Here is my card

I've used Label Love stamp set and matching Artisan Label punch on the base of my card as the anchor to hold up my easel.  The card has also been decorated with some tiny butterflies cut from the Beautiful Wings embosslits.  The larger Simply Pressed clay used for the largest flower was coloured with Crisp Cantanloupe Ink prior to being put in the mold and the 3 flowers have all been brushed with the Calypso Coral marker to tone in with the background embossing.  I've also inked the Greeting stamp in Calypso coral.

Here is the side on view of the Easel Card and the base of the card.

I love making Easel cards of all different shapes and many of my regular followers will know.  I think this one turned out well and is so pretty.  I love the colour combination given to us for this challenge.

Here is one last look at my card.

Thanks so much for stopping in to view my card for the challenge.  I hope you will leave some comments while your here.  I really appreciate the time taken to leave them for me and love to know what you think.

Have a great day.
