Challenge 45 - Tiets Sketch

Well another day and another challenge card.  I seem to have neglected my blog over the past week this is mainly due to getting everything ready for Amy's funeral for Thursday, but just to keep me sane I have managed to make this challenge card as I loved the Sketch and the Autumn theme.

I definitely think I have achieved the autumn theme as I have manage to find some papers in the depths of my craft room called Abstract Prints which are from Dovecraft full of lovely browns, rich reads, warm oranges and yellows.

The card is an easel card with a difference, as I was over on the Score-pal website and found a little tutorial that was for an easel card with draws and I have been meaning to have a go at one of these for a while.  I think it is great for putting little chocolates in or small items of jewellery.  The draws were made out of the same paper that I have decorated the top of the easel in and the draw pulls are card candy.

I have chosen to use a pre-made sentiment from Craftwork cards which was originally white and because I wanted it to blend in with my card I have coloured it in with my mustard promarker which I thought worked quite well.

A closer look at the top of the easel card so that you can see the layout used.

The image I chose to use is called "Elise" and can be found here at funky kits.  I have coloured her in with my promarkers using Blush, Honeycomb, Oatmeal, Mustard and Poppy.

My final greeting that has been put on the outside of the easel card once again was not the right colour for this theme so I have coloured it in with my Mustard promarker again.  I cannot tell you where this greeting is from as I have had them for years and have only just started to use them.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and for any comments you may like to leave.

Happy crafting.
