Lexi's Creations....Fancy Folds...

Hi Susan here...

Well time flies and we are here again with another great challenge over at Lexi's Creations.
The theme for this challenge is Fancy Folds, full details can be found on the Lexi's Creations Challenge Blog, basically we are looking for something special from you, not just a square or rectangle card, there is also some of the most amazing inspiration from the Design Team, I hope you will check this challenge out and come and join in with us.

Now on to my card...

You all know how much I love making these easel cards.....and for this challenge I have made one for a new baby.....This photo shows you the side view with the folds at the back.

This is to show you how the card looks face-on.
My backing paper is from my stash. The gorgeous lace and Broidery Anglais is from our local market.

This beautiful digi image has been designed by Lexi Lee and is available at Fairy Dust Crafts. I have used chalks to colour the image and then mat and layered the image onto scalloped card that I have dusted with chalks on the edges. The beautiful lace that I have trimmed the topper with is from our local market.

These tickets and sentiments are from Raindrop Echo Designs.

These gorgeous flowers are from Hobby Craft.

This is to show you the tag pocket I put into all my easel cards for the hand written sentiment to be put.

Thank you for taking the time to look and for all your wonderful comments
Love and hugs
