Creative card crew Easel cards challenge

Hi again everyone! This is my 2nd post for today please scroll down for my crafty sentiments post..
Over at Creative card crew we have another challenge and are so lucky to be sponsored by the fab Michelles scrapbooking, she has some fab deals on spellbinders so please check them out!
This time our challenge is to make an easel card. I always wonder why I don't make these more often, I guess because they can be so hard to photograph lol!
I have chosen to make a xmas card (another one to add to the pile) using this super sweet Magnolia image.

I have used Tim Holtz shabby chic papers again along with cheesecloth, prima lace, flowers from Wild orchids, snowflakes cut with Mariannes, tabs cut with nesties fancy tags, sentiment from Waltzingmouse and pearls from stash.

My image has been coloured with Prisma pencils and edged in vintage photo. All edges have been machine stitched and I masked the image and used 7 gypsies snowflake and postage mark to create the background. My flowers have been given a snowtex and glamour dust treatment too.

I would also like to enter this into Whimsy polka dots challenge (the bottom sheet is spotty promise!), Sweet sketch wednesday for their fab sketch, Sweet stampin anything goes (thanks for spotlighting me last wk ladies!), One stop crafts Easel cards, Magnolia down under fancy fold, Crafty pad stitching, Magnolia stamp lovers distressing, Pile it on fancy folds, Sparkles forum something that sparkles, Incy wincy fancy folds and come and get it Easel card.
I do hope you can check out the other DTs superb creations and thanks for coming by!
