Easel Card

So this past week the challenge for a contest I am in was an easel card. One of my teammates made the card for this week, but I really wanted to try an easel card. Here is what I came up with.I started with a yellow CS base, and added some DSP that I had on hand. I used the Smiling Flowers image from QKR Stampede, and colored it with colored pencils. I cut out the image and layered that onto some green CS. For the bottom 1/2 of the easel, I attached some yellow and green ribbon and some green buttons. I stamped the Rootin' For You sentiment (also from QKR) on green CS and trimmed it. I wanted my card to stay standing, so I added a little bit of scor-tape to help keep it in place.

Here is a side view. Not bad for a first easel card. I think I may try this again. Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget the "Ribbon Cutting Ceremony" for our QKR Stampede DT this Friday. You will probably want to start at our QKR blog HERE, but if you stop here first I will have a link to everyone's blog, and you will be able to get back to the start!

Great card, Jessica! We're on the same wavelength -- I was intending to attempt an easel card, as well! Great minds??
