A couple of Easel Cards

I thought I better get this on my blog before the challenge runs out on Spoonful of Sugar who wanted a shaped card. I thought I would have a go at using a nestability for the shape. It turned out quite tinky and the little High Hopes fairy fitted pefectly, lucky for me she was all coloured up but I missed the challenge I was going to use her for.

The papers are Basic Grey Origins and the small roses from Wild Orchid.
Now on Just Magnolia they wanted a card with two folds or more and while I did experiment with an idea which didn't work as I was at my Sis and it was her card stock. I thought I'll better use it so with it I made an easel card which does have two folds. I've also used the sketch on Friday Sketchers.

Papers are My Minds Eye and I used my MS doiliy punch to go round the oval. OK I know the brown ribbon sticks out like a sore thumb but in RL its not that bad.
I've realised I didn't put a end date for the little Sarah Kay stamp so I will draw it on Friday.
