Sweet Pea Combo Card

Good Evening Everyone
I came home from work today really tired and told the husband I was going for a snooze, he was quitely sat at his computer so did not notice that after an hour I had nipped upstairs to my "Beach Hut" and started creating this little number.

Although I did start with a sketch in mind, I sort of changed my mind and did my own thing.  
I am entering this card into the following challenges

Stamp Something - Layered - I have layered so many papers on this and a small card layered on top of the main card.

Daring Cardmakers - "Getting in a Flap" - the small card on top creates the flap, to hide the meaningful words.

Allsorts Challenge - Petals and Pearls - I have created my own little flowers and put little white roses in the middle of them and run the pearls from behind. (What a pain that was, but I think it was well worth it).

Cute Card Thursday - Touchy Feely - Oh don't you wish you could feel this velvet black stick on lace effect on the inner part of the card, a new purchase and wow it is fabulous.

Charizma Card Challenge - Monochromatic

ABC - S is for sparkle - now this is a subtle sparkle but it is there.  I have used my Atyou Glitter pens.  Black around the frame, Green on the stems, and clear/silver effect on the purple flowers.  Oh how I wish you could see the effect - I must start taking better photos.

So finally the card
An easel card with a flap opening little card on top.  The ribbon holds the card closed.  Base card is black, using my current favorite Capsule Mono papers on top.  The Ribbon a recent purchase from Running with Scissors (Tracey sorry I missed you) and the image from my winnings at Sweet Pea Stamps, (thanks again ladies).

Here is the inside of the little flap.

Again the sentiment from my Sweet Pea winnings and more of the lovely capsule paper.

The drop of the easel image
Had to show you this in close up as the edges of this panel are velvet sticky ribbon, what an effect it gives you.  Located at Running with Scissors (I did not spend to much honest)

And finally the close up of the image
Coloured with copics and Atyou Glitter pens.

Well must post as three minutes to midnight and although I had a snooze still quite tired.  

Don't forget my blog candy here and Teri's Birthday candy here.

Oh and off more craft shopping tomorrow at The Hobby House with a dear friend, can't wait.

Night Night

Hi Kate, I really like this card, it is a nice twist on the easel card. Like you I love to work with monochromatic palates, I really like the way it pulls all the elements of a card together. Thanks for stopping by at my blogg too, I appreciate your comments.
