Elisabeth Bells World Monthly Challenge for May

Happy Friday everyone!!!  I am happy to report that I am sitting here enjoying a nice peaceful day at home.  My job has given us the day off today.  (This is what happens when you work at a school, and you don't use the days that were set aside for snow days... We didn't use some of them, so we get extra holidays toward the end of the school year)  I am loving that. 

Today I have an easel card to share with you.  I created this one for this months Elisbeth Bells World Challenge.  The challenge this month is a sketch....  If you have some time over the next month, why not join us?  We'd love to see what creativity you have to share....



This darling stamp is from Belles 'n Whistles.  She is called "Ice Cream Butterfly"  She is currently Out of Stock, at BnW website, but can be found in other places such as
7 Kids College Fund, or Simon Says Stamp.

The little ice cream cones that you see on the bottom portion of this card are accessory stamps that I had from one of the Elisabeth Bell Kits that I had gotten from Whiff of Joy a few years ago.  This is the perfect accessory, wouldn't you say?

Here is a closer picture of this sweet little doll.


I used Copic Markers for my coloring and shading.  My circular shape is from one of my Nesties, and my flowers are created from my "Retro Flowers" punches.  The rest of the items found on this card are all just odds and ends found in my stash. 
I really like the way this easel card turned out.

I am entering this into these challenges:

My Mum's Craft Shop - Recipe
7 Kids Challenge Blog - Nellie Snellen and/or Layers
Paper Play Challenges - Summer Lovin'
Southern Girls Challenge - Dying To Die Cut or Punches
