Surprise! Surprise! Two easel cards in two days! LOL This card was actually made several weeks ago though and is one of four I'm making as guest designer at Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog this month. Thanks so much to Tracey for asking me and to Abi and Fi for allowing me to guest for them. :-)
The challenge at Sweet Stampin' this week is a photo inspiration you can see here:
The top part of the easel was created using a die cut piece of paper I had from another collection. I just used it as a template and them trimmed the other layers to fit and distressed them. There's a little of that fun cheesecloth I've been using, lots of pearls, and some lace that I threaded some pretty ribbon through. It doesn't show its true color in the photo, but it's a pretty icy blue/green that matches the papers really well.
I know the ladies would just love to see what you can create with this beautiful color palette so get creative and link it up for this week's challenge. :-)
