Enchanted easel card

This card is going to be entered into the Michelle Perkett studio challenge 26; Use a colour combination (Pale blue/ Turquoise/ Celery & Olive ) and an easel card.
I love making easel cards, they are so easy to make yet they look so effective.The image I decided to use from Michelle's many gorgeous images is 'Enchanted slumber'
I think this card will be suitable for a new baby, probably for a boy with the green and blue colours. I don't have anyone in mind to send this to, so it can go into my box for future use. Shame the colours weren't pinks as my daughter-in-law's brother and wife had a little baby girl in the early hours of Saturday morning. They are calling her Faith- how beautiful is that name. At least I have an excuse to make a similar card in pink!!

Items used to make the card;
Michelle Perkett- Enchanted slumber image
White A5 card with chevron lace- Red Hot Bed
Pale blue Bazzill card
Be Blessed BP in Cool Mint & Knit Together
Sentiment 'A Glimpse of God in my child's face' - Be Blessed rub-ons and cut into shape using Spellbinders Fancy Tags
Gorgeous pearls in 2 different sizes- The Hobby house
Coloured image with Promarkers
Stickles for fairy wings and center of flowers

Thank you all so much for taking the time to read this, I really do appreciate it so very much.
Now I am going to watch Avatar which was just released today- Yippee!! Afterwards, I hope I get some sleep as it really has been in short supply lately.

God Bless and many hugs,
Trish x
