Two challenges card!

Hi there I have just been to see my son's Year Two Art exhibition. My goodness what a talented bunch of artists in his class. He did a sculpture of himself skating very Henry Moore if I say so myself. I am chuffed. They are playing with Daddy in the park so inbetween cooking Roast Chicken I am just posting this Easel card I made today.

I have made this card for the following challenges.
Creative Card Crew - who want us to use our diecuts I used my nestie label shape to form the top of my easel card.
Wild Orchid Challenge - They want us to Say it with Flowers.

I have used this gorgeous Calliopsis image from the  Digi Doodle shop. There is a sale on at the moment with up to 50% off so go and check out the marvellous images available. I cut the image out and fixed to my nestie with foam pads. I coloured with promarkers and copics before cutting out and added some stickles too. I used Basic Grey  Stella Ruby papers they are so lush. I then used my Cuttlebug to emboss some white card to which I had attatched some gold ribbon. I then punched a border with a Martha Stewart Punch. I then used some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts to make a bouquet. I used roses and asters. I then added some stickles around them. I made a sentiment with my xyron design runner and I also added some raffia, a button and some string. There are a couple more pictures below. Please let me know if you like it.

Thanks for your time and for leaving a comment today Hugs Pascale x
