My first easel card

I have wanted to make one of these cards for some time and with the stimulus of the challenge from Mo's Digital Pencil to make a card with interesting folds, I thought this was my opportunity. The image is one of Mo's and I think it is simply adorable, it reminds me of my granddaughter Daisy last winter!
I have combined this with a few other challenges.
'Snowflakes' from the Creative Card Crew
Orange + one other colour from Digital Tuesday
Penny Black ' White on White' (apart from the image) The sentiment is my Penny Black element in this card.
Daring Cardmakers 'Get Punchy with it' - to use our latest punch acquisition. Nearly all these snowflake punches are new me this season.
At Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog, the challenge is entitled 'All that Sparkles'. The twinkle on this card was created with Glamour Dust.
The Sketch is from Create4fun, (however I did cheat with the shape of the image frame, I printed the image too close to the edge of the cardstock and so couldn't manage to cut out an oval!)
My knee is still giving me gyp and the codeine tablets prescribed by the doctor say 'Avoid Alcohol' so sadly no G&T for me today!
Haven't quite got the measure of this little camera, but hopefully my pics will improve soon!
