Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are you all, glad to report that I am finally on the mend.
Spent the past couple of days mostly sleeping, still have a cough but I am getting there.

Today I am sharing another card using the Madamoiselle designer papers and ephemera which you can purchase from my Etsy store, Emerald City Crafts UK.

Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 white square base card which I have scored the front of the card to create an easel card.
2. On the base of the card I have matted and layered black card and polka dot paper, I then added the lace and pearl trim to act as the stopper to keep front of card upright.
3. I matted and layered black card and 2 different papers from the Madamoiselle A4 and 6 x 6 paper pack.
4. I adhered the ephemera to the card with foam pads for dimension.
5. To finish off I added the pearl and diamante cabochon from my stash.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Crafts Galore Encore #39 - Anything Goes
Create and Makes #9 - AG Twist Vintage
Deep Ocean #149 - Add Lace
TTCRD - Anything Goes
Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes

Many thanks for visiting today
