Crafty Sentiments Designs 'Lemon & Lilac' Challenge

Good morning crafty people, lovely to have you here on this bright morning.
Today, I have for you a twisted easel card (note: not an easy card to photograph!) which I have made for this weeks challenge over at Crafty Sentiments Designs. Our challenge this week is to use the colours 'Lemon & Lilac' which I really enjoyed using.
I have added three photo's because I just could not do the card justice with only one.




Supplies:-
2x6" Square Card Blanks - Craft Superstore
Designer Papers - Forever Friends I think they were in my scraps box.
Cardstock - Bazzill
Medium - Promarkers
Seam Binding Ribbon - Candy from Mandy aka Crafty Fox Cards
Flower - Wild Orchid Crafts & Stash
Butterfly Brad & Charm - Xmas Gift
Pearls - Papermania

Promarkers Used:-
Skin- Blush, Ivory & Oatmeal
Hair - Tan & Cinnamon
Top & Shoes - Soft Lime & Lemon
Trousers & Hair Band - Lilac & Lavender

Please hop over to the Crafty Sentiments Challenge Blog and have a look at what the design team have made.

*******************************

Now before I go I have been given two lovely awards this week which I don't normally post but thought I would as they are gratefully received.

The first one was given to me by the lovely Mandy aka Crafty Fox Cards 
There are a couple of conditions for the award – explanation and instructions follow:
You have been TAGGED and want to participate? Then create a post where you post the 'LOVE BLOG' image. You should also blog the persons link that gave you the award and inform her/him that you accept the award. You can then choose 3 - 5 favourite blogs which you also link in your post, then each blogger will inform you that they have been tagged....

Dear bloggers:
The aim of this action is that we bring unknown, good blogs to light, so I would ask you not to blog fellow bloggers that already have 3,000 followers. As always, the hardest part is to pick who to pass this on to, there are so many bloggers I could give it to, so . . .the 5 I have chosen are......
The second award was given to me by the lovely Bev aka All The Things I Love

Thank the person who gave this award to me and link it back to their blog
Pass this award to 8 other people who write blogs I love to visit and leave a comment so that they can pass along the recognition!
Share 8 things about myself with my lovely blog readers

Now as I look around blogland I see that quite a lot of you have received these rewards already and so decided to not pick names but to ask that if you haven't yet received either of these you help yourself and let me know you did so I can pop over and thank you.
