my first easel card

My first play at an easel card.
I've used Kanban double sided card. and dawn Bibby designs die cut flowers.
Tilda stamp wheelbarrow wooden button, ribbon and flowers from odds n ends. flower brads.
found the design easy to do and it was a joy, although I think I should have made the fold lines alittle further apart as it doesn't stay put keeps poping up or the card to make the rest need to be alittle higher. still learn from our mistakes.
The just Tilda challenge this week is to make a easel card so am going to enter it into that.
coloured Tilda with promarkers peach and tan her hair was burnt orange.
I as yet dont have any skin tone promarkers so skin tone was coloured with derwent  pencils.
Thank you for looking

Clean and simple

I made this card for Stamping sisters in christ challenge 31.
Scripture was pslam 51 v 7-10. It starts
cleanse me with hyssop and I will be clean,
wash me and I shall be whiter than snow,
 The theme was to make a simple clean card.
            I used Digi download papers patchwork from Cuddly buddly.
Nesties lables 13 and ribbion and gems from stash.
The wording isnt very clear sorry I couldnt get a close up of the text and get the whole card in the picy.
text reads:
Bfore you sleep just gently lay every trouble throught away.
Drop your burden and your care in the quite arms of prayer.
Thank you for looking

A good book.

I made this card for the stamping sisters in christ.
The theme was peace.
The stamp I used was Penny black,
backing paper DCWV,
A.G frames and journal die cut.

I chose this image because after a long day the best way I unwind is to read.
I thank God for the day thats just gone and curl up with a book its the most peaceful part of the day.
I added scripture Phil 4 v7 The peace of God which transends all understanding will guard hearts and minds to christ Jesus. ( niv).
No matter what the day brings if we look to the lord he's peace will help us through.
Thank you for looking
