Quixotic Challenge 1

Hello everyone, today's card is for the very first challenge on the Quixotic Challenge blog and they have a theme of birthdays...nice and easy!

I have done another easel card.... I just love these, they are so easy to do but I think they look so effective and it is a bit of a change from a normal fold! I have used Tilda with Ice Cream from the Magnolia Lazy Summer Days Collection and she is coloured with copics and highlighted with stickles. My DP is Basic Grey Lemonade and I think these are my favourite papers at the moment!

I have taken another picture so you can see it from a different angle. I used my MS doily lace punch for the middle panel and I finished off with some jewels.

Finally, my usual close up!

Card/Paper: Blue and White card, Basic Grey - Lemonade
Stamps: Magnolia - Tilda with Ice Cream - Lazy Summer Days Collection
Colouring: Copics - E00, E51, R20, E21, E33, E35, E29, C1, 0, BG01, BG09, RV02, RV04, RV10, G00. Inkssentials pen for highlights.
