My first easel card

I keep seeing these easel cards around blogland and wanted to give it a try.
Love the pink and grey colour combo from Cute Card Thursday it is sooo pretty and girly and the layout is from a sketch C.R.A.F.T. which I rotated to the left. C.R.A.F.T. are looking for Guest designers!

My photography skills are rubbish, think I need to enroll onto a photography course haha!!

I am entering the card into the following challenges.
