Happy Birthday Easel

Hi all!

I decided to join in with this weeks LOTV challenge as I haven't entered in a while and decided to do something a little bit different with my card blank. I googled 'easy easel card' a few weeks a go and a YouTube video came up with a quick easel card so thought Id give it a go. And this is what I came up with:

The photos aren't that great despite all of the sun!!

I'm quite impressed with myself lol! All I did was fold one side of my 6 by 6 card blank in half and et voila lol!
This is what I used:
  • LOTV Rosie with Presents stamp
  • LOTV circle sentiment stamp
  • K+Co Sparkly Sweet paper pad (I LOVE this pad!! I haven't been able to buy it anywhere then LOTV were selling it at their stand at the GNPE - how pleased was I lol!!)
  • Promarkers
  • MS small butterfly punch
  • Crystal Stickles
  • Tiny flat backed pearls
  • Circle and scalloped nesties
  • The new label nesties
  • Papermania Pearl Brads
  • Papermania paper flowers
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Now to get on with the dreaded assignments before I run out of time like usual!!!
Hope everyone is well :)
