Wow I actually made an Easel card! I love the Easel look but always thought they were difficult. They are beautiful and SO EASY!!!! I got the directions from Split Coast Stampers. This beautiful sketch is from the Basic Grey Challenge and the lovely digi is from Deedee's Digis, "Friends are Flowers". I colored the digi with Copics, used Tim Holtz Pumic ink for my distressing. My DP is from Basic Grey, Stella Ruby and Buttercup from Oh Baby. The lace, bling and metal heart are from stash. The digi was cut and then popped up with pop dots, so was the sentiment.

Following Challenges:
Simon Says: Recipe, 2 Patterned papers, 3 embellishments
Deedees Happy Monday: Make Someone Smile
Crafts For Eternity: Easel Card
Paper Sundaes: Metal
Basic Grey: sketch
