Easel Card with Sewing Technique

Yesterday I took the time to make yet another card. I've been meaning to make a card for a long time now where I actually sew on the card. Most times I tend to forget until its too late but for once I managed to not forget. I just love the affect that the sewing has on cards and I have to say it really worked for this one too. Green is one of my favorite colors and plus I had some huge green roses that I bought a while ago that I've been meaning to use on a card. However they were much too large for this 4.75 x 4.25 inch card so I tore off 3 of the layers of petals underneath to make it the size that I want. I don't think its too noticeable but I have to say that those roses do not compare to the beautiful Mulberry roses that most crafters use.
The image was outlined with copics and colored in with pencil crayons. I'm wondering if I should take the time to color the surface that Tilda is resting her hands on? Is it a table or should I just leave it the way it is? I left the inside plain but I like how it looks. There is such a thing as too crowded in my opinion.
Anyway, enough chatter...Here is my card.

Finally.....A Post

I finally found the time to put up another post. I found this cool website with card tutorials and there were quite a few on there that I found to be pretty cool. This here is one of the cards I found. Its called a Magic Slider Card. I'm not too impressed with the color of the card but I only had yellow 12x12 card stock paper so I didn't have much of a choice. Other then that I think it turned out great. I used Copics to outline the Tilda image and pencil crayons to color it. I find it quite interesting to color with pencil crayons cause you can basically use the same technique that you use with copics and plus I don't have any pastel copic colors so I have no choice but to use pencil crayons.
And just a heads up to all of you who were kind enough to send my sister a card. will be choosing a winner to receive a small prize package once my sister has received all the cards.
Anyway here is my creation.

"Need Help!!!" Please Read!!!!!!

Hey there peeps... its been a while since I've dona post but you won't have to wait much longer...I promise I'll get a post up soon with one of my creations.

I have to ask you guys for some help. My youngest sister Jessica (16) was in a farming accident at a meat shop and she cut of 3 of her fingers at the first joint. This happened about 2.5 weeks ago. At first the doctors thought they might be able to save one of them but as it turns out, the finger that they had tried to fix had to be removed surgically yesterday.
She's doing OK but I feel sorry for the poor dear and I thought that maybe if she received some cards from far and wide it would make her feel better. If you are interested in sending her a card please email me (sidebar) and I will send her address to you. Just so you know she is from Canada.
Thanks too all of you in advance. Hugs, from Rosalee
