4 challenge card

Hello everyone!!

I hope you all had a good Easter! We had a fab time away. We toured round Scotland staying in the Youth Hostels. I've never stayed in a Youth Hostel before so wasn't sure what to expect but it was great and the girls loved it. Our trip home ended up a bit different than expected though, as the road we were going to take was closed with the snow so we had to do a massive detour!!

Hard to believe that was only last week and now it is gorgeous and sunny. I know which I prefer!!

Anyway, back to normal now so I have made this card. It is for my Dad's birthday and I am entering the following four challenges:

Papertake Weekly - I have used the sketch

Creative Inspirations - I have followed the colour scheme of Green, Brown & Blue

I Love Digi - I have used a digital image (Sammy and the steam engine from Digital Stamps Oasis) and followed the 'recipe' of 3 Papers, 2 Brads + 1 Embellishment.

Moving Along With The Times - The challenge was to make an easel card. First time I have done one of these and I'm quite pleased with it!!

The papers are from Crafts-Too and Daisy & Dandelion. The embellishment is from Papermania and was silver. I tried colouring it with my promarkers but it didn't come out like I wanted, so I embossed it with brown embossing powder and my heat gun instead.

Thanks for looking!!
