Blessed, an Easel Card for Paper Playtime!


Good Monday Morning!

Here's a Stampin' Up inspired easel card.  I was paging through the 2010-2011 SU! catty and saw a lovely framed piece, page 160, if you're interested.  It really caught my eye...so I set out to see what I could create with it in mind!  (I did try the wide ribbon but it didn't work on my card!)

Paper: SU! cs
Other: MS butterfly punch,
SU! ribbon, piercing tool,
Zva Creative bling,
Cricut (plantin sch.book, letters)

Isn't this a pretty color combo?!  I left the bottom blank, so I could write a personal note of encouragement.

We have a new Paper Playtime Challenge for you today, we're making easel cards.  Pop over to the challenge blog for all the gorgeous inspiration, prize info & details, there's even an instructional video to view!

Hope you have a chance to play along!  Thanks so much for stopping by today, enjoy your Monday!

I shared today's creation with -
Flutterby Wednesdays - use a flutter
Simon Says Stamp - multifold cards
Marks Finest Papers -Use a Punch
The Rubber Cafe - No Designer Paper
Craft Fancy -  Use diecuts

Come join my
