Let Them Eat Cake!

Evening all:) Hope you're doing well, and are having a nice week-Friday tomorrows so almost the weekend! Got anything fun planned? Not sure what we're upto but me and Leo are going to my mums on Saturday which will be nice:) My mum's hobby is art so Leo always has lots of fun painting with her:) Anyways..

Last weekend was the new Kraftin Kimmie release which I always look forward to as I just love the quirky stamps, and the cuties too:) When I saw this card made by Elaine as her sneaky peek I knew I had to have that stamp! Along with Alice in Wonderland I also love Marie Antoinette-how gorgeous is the dress in this image-was soooo much fun to colour! I haven't made an easel card since December so thought I'd have another go-they are just so special I think! I made my easel card so the front was 6 x 6-can't be doing with any smaller than that really-there never seems to be any room left! If you've not had a go at making one yet here's a fab tutorial by Jacqui with simple instructions and piccies. Here's a front on piccy:~

I'm going to enter this into the following challenges:~

Simon Says Challenge-The Movies-Marie Antoinette
Practical Scrappers-Glitter/Bling
CCT-Touchy Feely-the yummy Prima lace
ABC-S is for Sparkle-glitter and glamour dust

The flowers I used are from the Prima E line-such fab value aren't they? I spritzed them with Shimmerz in Mudpie then sprinkled a little glamour dust over them. The leaves have got a touch of stickles added in eucalyptus, and all the pearls are once again from Prima's fab E Line. Ooo almost forgot about the lace-I've never bought any Prima lace before until the weekend and oh my-it is so special! You'll know exactly what I mean if you've got some and if you haven't you need to!

Once again this card shall be popping along shortly to my etsy shop;)

Thanks for all the lovely comments you've been leaving me-I so appreciate them-and thanks for popping by today! See you tomorrow:)
