Polka Doodles Challenge - Easel Card

Another post from me today as being Friday, it's Polka Doodles challenge time again. This week's theme of EASEL CARDS has been chosen by team mate Brenda as she says she's addicted to them - I second that as I just love them too! Good wishes go out to Brenda too as she's been feeling under the weather lately - hope you feel much better soon Brenda.
My contribution is one of the samples I made for Nikky from the absolutely stunning collection of papers, images and sentiments on the brand new Polka Doodles CD, Sundae of Seasons. I have no idea how Nikky managed to fit all this on one CD as there's a massive amount of stash there all ready to be printed out. Nikky is on Create and Craft TV on Monday 20 September at 10am and the show is a must just to see the variety on this year round CD.
My easel card has been made from the stunning Sewing collection which is a favourite of mine as my younger daughter is starting her Fashion degree at Kingston University next week and we will be taking her up there tomorrow (along with a massive amount of stuff!)
I'm sure you can see from the photos why I love this collection so much and I have to say the collection of papers on there is from my point of view, the best yet. The papers have a very vintage feel to them rather like fabric and the colours are so beautiful with lots of deep reds, greens and teals with some softer pinks, aqua and golds.
Don't you just love the mannequin here which can be cut out too and there are also some black and white versions to colour yourself or print out on patterned paper.
The challenge is open until 12 noon on Sunday 26 September and don't forget to take a look at the other DT creations as there's some very spooky stuff there!
I'm also going to enter my card in the Craft Your Passion challenge with the theme of Easel Cards and the Crafts and Me challenge with the same theme.
