A baby girl skewed easel card!

Evening, all! I have finally made a skewed easel card! I used the tutorial on Jacqui Dennis's tutorial blog. It was much easier than I thought, but taking pictures isn't that easy!

The challenge at Penny Black Saturday Challenge is 'Milestones' and this card is for someone who's just had her first baby!

The sketch is this week's Sketch Saturday offering. I used a Nestie for the circular element - on reflection the text should have gone into the bottom corner, but never mind!

Papers are a freebie 'Honey and Hugs' from (I think) 'Papercraft Essentials.' I have a bigger version of this pad, and the papers are so cute and pretty! The narrow ribbon is white velvet, from Hobbycraft. Flowers are Wild Orchid, plus a white rosebud from stash that I coloured with Rose Pink Promarker. The pink blanket is glittered, and so are the cute little socks on the message square.

Here's the inside:

I hope you like it! I can't produce a list of Promarkers, as I've lost it!!!

Thanks for looking!

luv, Mags x

Hi Mags, what a pretty card this is...! Just popping by to say thanks for your nice comments on my cards, and for the especially helpful advice about turning off my word verification. I have turned it off now. The sad fact is that all this time I didn't even know I had it turned on!
