Easel Card Challenge

Enjoying the Bank Holiday yet? So far it's been a total wash-out here in London with rain all day Saturday and blimming cold. Had to put the heating back on; oh the joys of an English summer! Hopefully today and Monday will be better, fingers crossed.

BUT because of the dire weather it was a perfect day for a spot of crafting, so I spent some time creating my challenge card for Dottie's World. I set the challenge this week and I want to see EASEL CARDS! If you don't know how to make one then I created a little tutorial ages ago on the main Charmed site HERE. So an easel card, with a Charmed download of course. Here is my effort:

I used a Mikey image from the Mikey Bundle which I coloured with my Copics - must start writing the colours down again, I will do I promise. Wroom sticker is a Imaginisce Let's Roll Vinyl sticker.

On the bottom I used another Let's Roll sticker (the arrow), some ribbon from the same range and the road paper is likewise from that range. I painted some wooden buttons in black and popped an extra large green pearl on top of each one to make it look a little like the buttons are tyres.

Why is it is so darn difficult to get a good picture on a dark day? If you see any good card picture taking tutorials anywhere let me know please.

Please pop over and join in, we would love to see your creations. The design team has created some fabby examples for you.

Have a great Bank Holiday. I'll be drawing my candy tomorrow so see you then - GOOD LUCK to all who entered xx

Karen, this is so awesome. I like the colors and theme on this one. Great card for a boy. This kind of reminds me of my youngest when he gots his license.
I had so much fun making mine. Thanks for a great challenge.
