Bealymine Designs Twentyfirst Challenge - "Easel Does It"

Good Morning Everyone, yes we have now reached our Twentyfirst Challenge here at Bearlymine Designs Challenge Blogspot and this time we want to see your "Easel" cards Im sure if you dont know how these are created you will find lots of help on the internet, anyway this week we are being sponsered by the following sponsers:-

Wowee theres certainly some awesome prizes there and Im sure it will encourage you to take part in this Challenge, and heres my card.
For my image I have used a Kenny K one and this is titled "Lady Victoria" I have printed her onto white card then used my copics and tria pens to colour her afterwards I used the large Nestabilitie Rectangle to cut her out, and cut a mount with a even larger die, the sentiment is one from my stash though its not to easy to see in this picture.
The basic size of the Easel is a 6"x 6" one and I have used two square of dark pink pearlescent card for the main mounts and on each of them I have layered up first one of a fabulous papers from Donna's Bearlymine "Shabby Vintage" set of digi papers, a beautiful mix of pinks and beiges, then on top I have used a rose patterned one from the same set but this time I have cut it into a 5" square and used one of my corner and border punch sets from Martha Stewart. I then wrapped some vintage style lace around both of the mounts with a gold satin ribbon across the top of it, on the top one I have placed my mounted image towards the right, and on my second the sentiment strip to work as the stop for the top mount. To finish of I have created a flower spray in the top left hand corner with several sized roses in different colours to pick out the colours of my image and 3 pearl and gem hat pins these were stuck to the card with silicone glue on top of punched out fern and rose leaves, and my last little trick was to run some stickles along the edges of the roses.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit Bearlymine Designs Blogspot and see what the rest of a very talented team have created for you and hopefully it will inspire you to take part in this "Easel Does It" Challenge.
