Magnolia Down Under Challenge meets Everybody Art - Easel card

It is time for another challenge at Magnolia Down Under Challenge and this week it is my team's turn to inspire you all! The challenge this week is to make an easel card. If you haven't already had a go at these they are surprisingly easy! I managed to combine my DT card with the gorgeous sketch at Everybody Art challenge. The papers are all from the same sheet of Baby Blue Scroll by Paper Adventures. It had stripey, spotty and swirly bits all on the same 12x12" sheet! I have distressed the edges with weathered wood distress ink and stickles and I have also stamped a Stempelglede flourish around the edges.

I have used one of the gorgeous Tildas from the winter kit, I love the way she is crouched down doing this sealing wax, it reminds me of my wedding invitations because I wax sealed them all LOL!

I punched some flowers from plain vellum and stickled the edges before adding some sugar coated brads from my stash and more swirls from my new punch! I was trying to create a reasonably flat card. I don't know about you but I've posted quite a few of my cards lately and it is costing a fortune posting all those bulky roses etc!! Although I think the bow will probably still send it over the wafer thin limit the PO now has!

The sketch called for a tag - I've made mine from the same cardstock and papers as the rest of the card and added some chiffon ribbon to match the bow.

The base of the easel card has been decorated with the same papers and more vellum flowers and swirls. I have written the sentiment myself with a silver gel pen.

Hope you like it and can join us this week at Magnolia Down Under challenge. Have a look at the rest of the DT's awesome creations - I really am lucky to be on this team of immense talent! x
