Thinking of You

Here is a little easel card I did with an image from Tammy at A Day For Daisies.  If you notice the cupcake at the top of my sidebar, you can click on it to go to my blog candy which involves some stamps from Tammy.  I used the tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers for the easel card instructions.  I stamped the background paper with my Posy Patch  stamp from Heartfelt Creations and then embossed in white.  A MS punch made the borders for the image which is colored with Prismacolor Pencils.  I also added some hearts to the image.  I pierced around the edge and added some doodling and then attached the panel with pop dots.  The butterfly is colored with Dusty Concord distress ink and has some pearls added.

For the bottom panel, I added another MS border and then stamped the sentiment.  The flowers are given some color with some more Dusty Concord and stickles.  I set them on my hand crocheted flower and added some pearls.  There is a layer of lace at the top of the border.  There is also a tiny rhinestone butterfly.  The border sentiment panel is on pop dots.

  1. BEAUTIFUL card!!!
    Thank You for joining us at PIO this week! Have a GREAT day!

  2. Hello Sarah
    Easel cards seem to be all the rage at the moment, and yours is just delightful.
    Your Bg with the hot Pink stamped with White posies is a the first thing that catches your eye, so already the card has energy. Then my eye moves to the image and butterfly and there is now movement on your card, your punched trims/borders adds loveliness with a pop of lime green for a Wow effect, plus your little flower with the pearls, altogether it makes one gorgeous creation.
    Thank you so very much for joining us this week at OCC we are very pleased to see your work.
