I subscribe to a digital card site and the competition was for a green theme so this was my entry. (First time of entering!!)
Main card folded in half and using Spellbinder Label 20, I printed the ladies onto a white card and coloured them in with Promarkers.
I then cut out the next size and mounted the white onto this and using another die cut which I cut in half and placed this behind.
They were then mounted onto some backing paper that has glitter on it, put a yellow rose in the corner that I had made and put some glitter on the dresses.

Don't you just love Spellbinders??? The cards are fantastic and I love the Ballerinas on them Jacqueline.
The whole theme is set off with the Labels 20 dies and making a card with these dies is just a guarantee of success.
If you are a Newbie to card making and would like to make cards as lovely as Jacqueline then take a look at the Tutorials especailly for Spellbinders in the Tutorials section in the NavBar to your left.
Another card that I entered for a digital competition on the cdac site. http://priscillastyles.ning.com/ image provided by back to back paper.
I coloured it in with Promarkers after printing it onto white card. The image was cut out using Spellbinders Labels 20
I drew around the shape again on light purple card and cut this out carefully with my bladed knife. The spotty paper was from my card making magazine.
The image was padded onto the card and then finished off with yellow flowers and a little butterfly coming from her hand. The sentiment was stamped onto white card with lilac ink.

Well hello Dotty, and doesn't she make a very pretty centre piece for your card.
I love the Labels 20 and use it a lot on my cards and the technique with the Faux Nesties is explained fully in the Techniques section in the NavBar to your left.
It really helps to extend the sizes and usage of any label die that you have.
The colours you have used here are very soft and I love the pastel shades that are comingin again for the Spring seaon.
And the flowers .... well what can I say about adding flowers to a card. Gorgeous!!
They just make into something really special for me, along with the ribbons and the pearls ... which is why I called my new Blog Flowers, Ribbons and Pearls and I do hope you will visit and join the band of followers.
I have always liked this quad easel card that you made Christina so thought that I would like to make it for my daughter and her family who live in Australia.
For the base I used pale blue card 18 x 18, then mated gold card 17.5 x 17.5 I then matted pale blue onto this. I made up the four corners with different designs matting and layering with blue snowflake card and gold card.
Before I fixed the corners to the base I made a hole in each card and fixed a star brad and then put foam pads to lift it slightly before fixing it all together. I used peel off's to make the names of each grandchild and my daughter and son in laws name so they each have their own corner.
Thank you Christina for your lovely idea.x

This is a card that looks much more complicated than it is and the finished result is very unusual.
It is also one that is sure to get some comments from who ever is lucky enough to get one of your creations.
What a lovely idea to give each family member a corner for them selves and add different designs for each part.
The only problem now is they will argue over which corner should be on display. They will have to take it in turns each day to have their name on show.
If you would like to try making it as Jacqueline has done then you will find the video tutorial in the NavBar to your left ... Quad Easel Card
Have fun with it and don't forget to add your card photos to the Gallery pages just like Jacqueline.
