My First Easel Card

I have seen the appearance of easel cards and thought I would have a go at one.  I'm not very good following instructions on paper but came across some diagrams on Crazy 4 Challenges which helped me a lot.  The stamped image is from Pollycraft Designs, the gorgeous papers are from Allisa's Crafting Studio, backing paper from my stash and the lovely blossoms from Jak Heath.

This card fits the criteria for 8 challenges:

Pile it On - Leaf of leaves
Sophisticats - Wings
Creative Card Crew - Doodles
Quixotic Challenges - Stitching
Lots to Do - Distressed
Crazy 4 Challenges - Easel card
Saturday Challenge - Easel card
Allsorts - Bling.

Hi Kym

Like you I have seen quite a few of these easel cards this week - but I haven't tried to make one yet. (I will have to though because they look great).

I love what you have made here. Such gorgeous papers that match your image perfectly.

Thank you for joining in my challenge with Allsorts - I hope you enjoyed it.

Love Jules xx
