My first Easel Card...

Here we have my first attempt at an Easel Card, which I made as a birthday card for our lovely friend Pia.

CS is Curious Metals Cream, layered with Keyes Reindeer Brown and blue scrapbook paper. Stamps are Hero Arts Essential Messages, stamped with Versafine Onyx.

The flower, although already so lovely, just needed some bling. I used Diamond Stickles on the petals and centre of the flower to brighten it up.

Beautiful card; the stickles were the perfect touch to an already lovely card. I've got to try Easels - haven't done so yet.

Helen, I got the notice of your post through scrapbook lounge. Your card is just beautiful. I love your added bling. I would not have thought of the gems on the buckle what a great idea. Congratulations on your first easel card. My first one wouldn't stand up :(.
