It's an Easel Baby!

I think it has taken me longer to get a good photo of this card than it did to make it, but here is my second card of the day.  This was inspired by 2 challenges this week, Charisma Cardz "Easel" Challenge and I Love Promarkers "Babies" challenge.  So here is my "Split Easel" card....

Using a 6x6 card blank I folded one half in half using my Hougie Board and then split this side roughly 2/3 and 1/3 to give a "Split Easel" ( not sure if this is the terminology or if anyone has actually done this before but hey I was feeling creative).
I've used an image from Pink Petticoat called "Baby Buggy Boy" and coloured this simply with promarkers ( Almond, Pale Pink, Lilac, Lavender and Amethyst).  The Papers are all Pink Petticoat ( Lilac Dotty and Sunshine Washed Damask).  I've finished it off with a printed sentiment and some Seam Binding from the Ribbon Girl.  The Buttons are American Craft that I picked up in the Hobby Craft sale.

I hope you like it...
