Daring the soul

The front of my easel card

Open easel card

 Ribbon reel colour combo: Strawberries and cream

Good Day

Just before the weekend starts, I want to share this card with you. It has been a while since I wanted to make a round red easel card. When I saw the sketch at the Outlawz and the colour combo of Ribbon Reel, I had no excuse any more. The digis is from Digi Darla and the small bunny toy is from Stampin Dragon Design. I've coloured the images with aquarelles. The designer paper is from NitWit collection called Cookin' Cookies. Dies is from Nestabilities, Marianne Design and DoCrafts and the punch is from Martha Stewart. I've used a Fiskar emboss template for the heart embossing.

Other Challenges I'm joining:
Ribbon Reel #30 - Straberries and cream with ribbon or lace
Freshly Brewed #100 - Anything Goes
Crafty Creations #174 - So Charming 
Jackson Digital Expression's #8 - Anything goes with ink and such
Bearly Mine #39 - Tic Tac Toe - Dies, Charms, Pearls

Thank you for your visit. Hope you have a blessed weekend!
Olga
