``Easel`` to look at...

Isn`t this image just the nicest. It was a FREE vintage download (can`t remember the site right now). I matched the light blue under the hat with soft sky SU! (perfect match) and added crotched lace and pearls to create a vintage feel. I made 3 scrunchy, crunchy flowers using french script SU! inked with linen distress ink and stamped onto vellum. I then punched out 5 scallop circles and 1 1/4 inch circle, 1 inch circle and 1/2 circle punches (2 each of these). I inked up the edges with faded jeans distress ink and added some more linen distress ink on top. Centered a brad to hold the layers and popped a pearl on top. Oh yah, I scrunched the circles too. I cut out my image using oval nestabilities and layered it on top of a scalloped nestie. For the inside of the card, I used pearls for the `stopper` and added some vanilla hardware with the sentiment `Fabulous friend`inside. Finished it off with vanilla satin ribbon SU! Using the easel card technique will show off the card perfectly. TFL.
