Easel Card

Greetings friends... I hope you've all had a wonderful week and that you are looking forward to the weekend which is just around the corner.  I've been very busy at work and notice that I've missed a few challenges... ;)

My friend Deidre asked me to make her a card for her sister and when I suggested that I'd like to try something different, explaining what the easel card would look like, she thought it sounded nice and said I could go ahead... and here is my first Easel card I'd like to share with you... I hope you like it!

Deids and her sister are very close so I thought I'd go all out to make this card special for her. The only request was that I use turquoise and pink, which I've done.  The pink striped and swirly paper are from Paola, as well as most of my embellies and ribbon.  The turquoise flowers are from the Scrapbook Shop.  The image is a stamp which I also purchased from Paola, it's Ladybug & Friends, Hello Sunshine.  The sentiment is a stamp purchased from Charmaine's.  

Well, it's been nice catching up with you again.  Take care until later... hope you're having FUN whatever you're doing.  My cousin turned 50 today, Happy Birthday dear Vincent.  Blessings, Sharon x
