Sweet Pea Stampers - Easel challenge
Welcome to another Sweet Pea Stampers challenge!!! Our challenge this time was to create an easel card - it has been a long time since I made one of these ( I even had to look up directions :)
Make sure to check out all the wonderful creations of my fellow DT members here - http://thesweetpeastampers.blogspot.co.uk/ and if you join in and play with us you could win some sweet Sweet Pea images - use a Sweet Pea stamp or digi in your creation and you will have 2 chances to win :)
For my card today I used Ching Chou Kuik's 'Black-haired Lady' as a digi (I have this one as a stamp too :). I colored her with Koh-I-Noor pencils and cut her and all the layers with Spellbinders dies.
I tried something new with one of the flowers - I wanted it on the bottom portion when it was open but wanted it to still fold reasonably flat, so I added a tab to that flower and it flips up to rest on the front when closed and then on the inside when its open.( I was quite please that I thought of it :)
Its another murky rainy day here in NW Florida - I am hopeful that this is our last cold blast for the year - I really need to get some yard work done and don't want to be so cold doing it :) (after al these years in Florida - I guess I am getting spoiled :)
All for today - worked the last 2 night so am for some sleep this am and then the weekend off!!!!
