Paintbox Poppets Lacey Easel Card.

Hi Folks!

Hope you're all ok?  I've been very busy at this end crafting away and doing some reorganising on my laptop and in my craft room.

Today's card was created for two challenges in particular...Joanna Sheen's Challenge (Lavendar & Lace) and CD Sunday (Beautiful Ballerinas), which is for CD crafters.

As you can see, I've used paper lace instead of fabric lace...adding that would have been overkill.

The image and backing papers are from Crafters Companion's Paintbox Poppets CD (beautiful).  The matting layers are Papermania Textured cardstock.  The lace edges were added to the easel using a Martha Stewart punch (see tutorial page for instructions), and the flowers were die cut from glitter card and had a faux gem added. 

This card is being entered into the following challenges:

cdsundaychallenge with the theme of Beautiful Ballerinas
joannasheenchallenge with the theme of Lavendar & Lace.

Take care everyone
Happy Crafting!
