my first easel card easier than I thought

For the secret crafter saturday challenge you had to do an easel card so I thought I'd give it a go, and was pleasantly suprised how easy it was.
I decided to combine with some other challenges as I'm getting use to not having to think about layouts as sketches take 1/2 the thinking away, lazy really letting someone else do all the work. The layout I've used is sketch and stash #23.

Roses on paper wanted a christmas card so i guess this Tilda would fit their challenge too. Magical crafts also have their first challenge and I might just scrape in to the deadline for one of the 2 challenge parts as their deadline is 9pm and its 10 to 9 now so I best type quicker. Their challenge is red green and gold christmas card or ornament. Extra double time as my web just closed but luckily saved a draft, here's my card.

Wonderful easel card Julye, love your colouring of the Tilda image, and the LO works well with this card design. I also made my first easel cards this week and was pleasantly surprised how quick and easy they are to make up.

Thanks for joining us for our very first challenge over on MCFC and good luck.
