Polka Doodles Challenge - 3 Patterned Papers

Good morning everyone on a gorgeous bright and sunny Good Friday and wishing you all a very Happy Easter.
It's time for a new challenge over at Polka Doodles and your hostess this week is Tracie. She would like to see your creations using 3 different patterned papers.
I've taken this opportunity to show you my favourite of the samples I made for Nikky with the new A Double Sprinkle of Kraft CD. In fact, I liked this one so much, it was really hard to part with it!

I made another unusual shaped easel card for this one simply by adding an oval shape instead of the usual square which was the shape of the base.
I covered the base of the card with some of the very pretty kraft floral paper and then the easel section, trimming the top edge with scallop scissors.
I cut out an oval shape from green floral paper and fixed this in the centre of the easel. I added one of the cute girls from the CD and sat her on a log as the CD has quite a lot of elements that are made for scene setting. All images were coloured with Promarkers. I added a touch of glitter pen for some sparkle.
I added a strip of the green floral paper matted on kraft brown and pink spotted paper to the base (this is my third pattern in case you were wondering where it was!).
I finished off with a greeting on a mat of the same kraft paper, some pretty butterflies and a vintage button from my stash as the stopper.

You have until 12 noon on Sunday 1 May to enter and good luck!

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
I Love Promarkers - Anything Goes
Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge - Anything Goes

Thanks for looking,
Fliss xx
