Today I have an easel card to show you.  I have had this little cutie with her summer flowers for ages but never used her before, shame on me.  I have coloured her with promarkers and layered her with several mats cut from nesties.  For the main part I have followed the great sketch which I was itching to use, adding punched flowers and gems.  The circular sentiment was given to me for my birthday by a friend and is the first time it has seen ink.  The panel on the base part of the card has been punched and I have used a fancy tag to attach my sentiment to.  I am really pleased how this one turned out.  Hope you like it too, thanks for looking.
