Easel Card Hop ~

Hey everybody ~ Thanks for taking the time to stop in and see me today. This is my very first ever easel card! It was so easy...can't wait to make another one. Shame I have spent so much time admiring them but thinking "I could never do that"!  Special thanks to our host Ashley for helping me step outside the box!!
If you are here from the fabulous Jamie, you are on the right track. I will try make this short and sweet so you can head on over to rockin' Robin and see what she has in store for you!


For the card base I used Martha Stewart Crafts Essential Paper Pad and Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles and Labels Four dies.




 I scored the top layer 1/2 way to create the easel

I used Watercolor paper for the image, Spectrum Noir markers, CTMH Dutch Blue dye ink and Stardust powdered chalk from Stamp n Plus Scrap n. The ribbon is Offray and the stamp is from K Andrews Scripture Sayings applied with copper embossing powder.
For the inside of the card, I used Hero Arts Good Friends stamp and copper embossing powder finishing it off with Hero Arts Pearls & Gems to give the card a place to prop.




Hope you are enjoying your walk through the easel card hop! If you have been here before, you know how I love to share! Instead of posting the prize, Random.org will choose one of my followers to receive something they can use! I will contact the winner to see if they like stamps, ribbons, brads, etc. Winner will be drawn on Wednesday 8/15/12.
Time to head on over and see Robin!!
~~~~~ Have a wonderful week ~~~~~
