Spring feel card

Hello & welcome to my blog.

Last Saturday I went to Alexander Palace, with my Mum. I always enjoy my time there. It's great to be around fellow crafter's & lots of inspiration is to be had.
I always find something to spend my money on. This time I purchased a product that allows you to make your own silicon mould. I have not had a play yet, but cannot wait. 
More gems, paper (as if I really need it, lol), die, liquid pearls (just love these) and the good old glue pen & a few packs of fine glitter!!!!

Today I am showing you a card I made a while ago now. It was made for a work colleague who was leaving us.
It's an Easel card, just love making these, but really do need to dabble in some new techniques!

What I Used:-

Image:- I won as part of blog candy from Donna @ Bearly Mine designs.

Promarkers:- Used to colour image.

Card & Paper:- Had in my stash and out of original packets.

Ribbon:- From localcraft shop on a reel.

Large Gem:- Wild Orchid Crafts.

Sequins:- Had in my stash.

Spellbinders Nestabilities:- Decorative labels one.

Fence/Bird/Bird House:- Marianne Design CreaTables LR0205.

Flowers:- Mixture ... some from Wild Orchid Crafts, some from local craft shop and some recycled.

Distress inks:- Ranger - Vintage Photo - Shabby Shutters - Scattered Straw.

I shall be entering my card into the following challenges:-
Creative Corner - (The Great Outdoors)
Simon says Stamp Blog - (Anything Goes)
Bearly Mine - (Anything Goes)

Thanks for stopping by & I look forward to reading your comments. I shall be on over to visit you too x
Enjoy the rest of your day where ever in the world you are x

Beautiful Card Sally love the image and layout. I am so glad I have a craft area and that I don't have to keep putting things away but stuff does tend to take over and I had to be pretty ruthless yesterday and today but all sorted now. Love Alison xx

Oh, such a lovely image, and how good the fence looks, too! The base of the easel card looks like a pretty garden, I really like how your card makes a lovely 3-D scene!
