Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today is a super exciting day as not only is it my second time of posting for the

Plus lots of DT gifts along the way, see them all along your travels,
 including mine so here it is

now what did I create for this week's theme well I tried to stay clear of red, white and black so here we go with my unusual colours
I made an Anniversary Easel Card
So the base layer is a pale green with some of those lovely Papermania Capsule Collection Mono's from the yellow stack.  The MS POTP is the double heart, the edge punch under the image is the MS single decorative heart.  The large heart is also an MS and the sentiment on the return is the nestie heart scallop and plain. The image plate has been airbrushed as has the image and the flowers with Y06.  The sentiment on the image is by Paula Pascual and on the return My Sentiments Exactly. Pearls from the Hobby House and a mint stickles has been added to the flowers. The ribbon is from my stash.

Here is the image close up
All coloured in copics, the blending on the roses uses the BG range and the Y range.

Now where are you going from here, well that would be to the very talented 

So don't forget to leave some lurrrrrrrrve here before you go and if you want to enter my other 700 follower candy then click here

Hugs and Happy Hopping
