Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are you all today?

Rick and I are off on our holiday today and we are very excited.
Mum is here to look after my fur babies, I will miss them!

I have blog post scheduled every day whilst I am away if you have time to visit that would be lovely.
Don't forget to check out my mixed media blog too!

My card today is made using The Paper Shelter Rebel image.

Step by Step

1. A5 white card which I have scored half of the front of the card to create an easel card.
2. I printed off the pattern paper which came with the digi image, distressed around the edges with cracked pistachio and adhered to the base of the card, I then added a strip of pearlescent card across the centre.
3. I matted and layered the patterned paper onto pearlescent card before adhering to the front of the card to create the front of the easel card.
4. Printed Rebel onto supersmooth and coloured with Copic markers, cut out with Spellbinder Curved Rectangle die then distressed around image with cracked pistachio. Adhered with foam pads for dimension.
5. To finish off I added the bling flourish, sentiment and brown pearl gems.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
