Here's the easel card I made for this challenge.  A jester always reminded me of the king and his castle!  The patterned paper is from Magnolia and the feathers from my cousin-in-law.  I added gems and Stickles.  I made the background panel with a SU stamp.
Voici la carte chevalet que j'ai fait pour ce défi.  Un harlequin me rappele toujours du roi et de son chateau!  Le papier à motif est de Magnolia et les plumes de la cousine à mon mari.  J'ai ajouté des pierres et du Stickles.  J'ai fait le paneau du fond avec une estampe SU.
I coloured Jester Tilda with Copics and added Smooch Illuminate and gems.

Love the Easel/sketch Brigitte, and love the blues. Your colouring is awesome as usual, and I think I just might have to try that smooch illuminate on of these day. DP's are gorgeous too.
