My First Easel Card

What a lovely sunny morning for my day off ,I spent the afternoon ironing yesterday so that I could craft guilt free today and this is what I've made so far. I have never made an easel card before but wanted to make something different for an 18th birthday.
I used Dreamy by Sugar Nellie,I cut the image keeping her feet out of the circle,I'm sure most of you know how this is doesn't but if not,check this out for the link. I mounted this onto a glittery paper scalloped circle,I haven't used this for ages but found this and the paper I used for my butterflies in the back of a drawer. Don't forget there's a Scalloped Circle challenge on over at Scrapbook Sister's this week! Now,looking at this photo the papers look turquoise but they are more of a minty green,I think the sunshine was playing tricks through the blinds lol!


I'm using this card for several challenges:-
Alphabet Challenge,U for unused stash,
Polka Doodles 37,Easel Card,
Crafty Catz 50,chocolate and green,
ASC 25,sparkley and glittery,
Paper Sundaes 35,Use 3 + embelishments,
Daring Cardmakers,There's something in the air,
Cute card Thursday 130,tweet of flutter,
and I think that's it!
Now I need to get cracking I'm at the Scrapbook Sister's Crop tomorrow so need to try for once to organise myself enough so that I don't end up taking the kitchen sink as I usually do.
Have a crafty weekend,thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x

An easel card. I think about them and think about them and then think...naaaa... I'll pass. And I'm not sure why I pass. I think they scare me! Me? Follow directions?! That's the REAL reason they terrify me!
I may just have to join the easel crowd and give them a try.
The image you selected is so perfect for a teen card and the coloring is lovely!
