CES Challenge ......Challenge 3

Good morning all you lovely crafters. Well its Saturday so that means only 1 thing.....yes thats right its time for a new challenge over at CES Challenges....
Last week we had amazing cards entered thankyou from every1 at CES
This week, challenge 3 is 'Christmas Easel' cards. Now this is a nice easy1 most of us love doing easel cards & the weeks are flying past we better get cracking with our crimbo cards lol.
Here is my easel card......pop on over to CES the DT's creations are gorgeous...
The papers are from Paislee 'Mistletoe & Co' & are from Crafty Emma's Store, the red paper is 'Naughty or Nice', the blue paper on the top is 'North Pole' & the blue paper on the bottom is 'Santa's Workshop' & the tag on the bottom is 'Postcards' these are all 12x12 papers & they really are gorgeous & all go so beautifully together.....actually I've just put a fresh order in for some more I like them that much lol.

Here is a close-up of the image I have used this week. This is from WOJ & its 'Ice Skating Henry', I'm in love with these little fella's they are just sooo cute I went over to WOJ & thought I'd have a peek see what else there was you know kinda like window shopping...mmmm bad idea ending up putting in a order oops!!!
Anyway they are coloured with Promarkers but the shading is with Prisma pencils. This was the 1st time I'd done it actually & it was because my new pens hadn't turned up....I really enjoyed doing it this way I found the shading easier & more controlled.....will def be doing it like that again lol.

The Dew Drops & Pearl Pin are from Crafty Emma's Store. The Poinsettia's you can also get from there. The leaves are from my stash as is the red crystal bead on the pin & the little rose buds. The snowflakes I punched out & then covered with Diamond Dust Twinklets, the sparkle is hard to capture on camera. The 'Merry Christmas' I think I got from Bunny Zoe's

Papers were edged with 'Vintage Photo' distres ink & distressed with my tooly thingy. The top I actually followed a sketch on 2 sisters challenge blog which has now ended.....darn it!!!
If you would like to join in with this weeks challenge then all you have to do is make an Easel Crimbo card...easy as could also be in with a chance of winning this...
