Easel Does It!

Yes,I've done another easel card,I should have made 3 cards today but my husband decided to work from home some of the day so I lost my place at the dining room table resulting in just the one card.
The papers are magazine giveaway ones from a while back. I've used 4 patterns of papers in all,the raised section is made up of strips that had been cut previously which I layered up then added a length of gingham ribbon to. I stitched a button to the centre of my bow and stitched through the card as well just to make sure it was extra secure.

Check out how I've matched the pattern where the sections meet!
I covered a chipboard oval brushed the edges with a chalk eye and added stickles My lovely Gorjuss girl was coloured using Copics and mounted onto a Sizzix die cut frame,I I covered the back of the frame so that the centre hole isn't visible. I know this might sound odd but I liked the idea of the shaped stand up back,does this make sense to you?,I fear I'm making it all sound a bit complicated lol! I added more Stickles around the edge.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Southern Girl Challenge 3,4 layers of patterned paper,
Paper Playtime Challenge 19,Ribbons Buttons or Rhinestones,
ABC Challenge,E is for Easel,
That's me for tonight,I hope to get the other cards made tomorrow,till then,
thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x
