Good morning to you all in the land of blog

Now after being blown away with the invite to join this fabulous challenge, my mind went totally blank, so after some wonderful suggestions from the lovely Christine and seeing some of the other gorgeous work created for this challenge, I decided to go with this for my inspirational piece.
I made an easel "Missing You" card.
The base layer and contrast here is a lovely deep chocolate brown.  The papers are "First Edition" from the Range and the dies are Memory Box a new one called Quinn Flourish and available from Grimsby Crafts. The roses are from Wild Orchid and distressed with TH "Old Paper" and the amber bling are from the Hobby House.

Here are the usual close ups
The easel

The return

this has been coloured in with copics.
