Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are you all today?
I had a lovely day yesterday catching up with my friends at Port Sunlight.

Today I have a step by step tutorial for you using Morgan Fitzsimons Cameo Digi Image.

I printed the cameo onto white Sheena Douglass Stamping card and left over night before using my Copics to colour her in and Spectrum Noir Sparkle to the flower.  I then cut her out using Spellbinder Oval die.

Take a piece of A3 Centura pearlescent card score in half and using Spellbinder Scalloped Oval cut through both pieces of card ensuring that you overhang the die at the top. Cut out a single sheet of white Centura card for the top.

Creating an easel card and printing backing papers from Kraftyhands Femme Fatale CD adhered to the front and base of the easel card.  This is the side view.

The front view of the card.

On the base of the card add lace and pearl trim as the stopper for the easel card.

Cut out another small Spellbinder Scalloped Oval in white Centura pearlescent card to mat and layer the image.  Add pearl floral trim around the cameo.

To finish off add pearl strands, white spiral and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts for decoration.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
