Party Time Tuesday!

This week at Party Time Tuesdays, the challenge is to make
an easel card. This was truly a challenge for me as I've never
tried to make one before. But my fellow DT gals shared
a really simple tutorial with me and then to my surprise,
my card came together rather quickly. It was really easy and
fun to make. I think I just might make a few more :)

And even better - I used all scraps! Woot! The flowers and
leaves are Martha Stewart clear stamps that I stamped and
cut out. Then I used a Qtip with the same color ink to shade
in the leaves a bit. Kinda looks like chalk, eh? I also printed
the sentiment from my computer, something I rarely do,
but might do more often. :)

We'd love to see your birthday easel cards! Just remember
to add a greeting on the front. There's a bunch of fabulous DT
examples to get you started! And this month, the random
winner receives a Cosmo Cricket Togetherness
Mini-Deck! Coolness. eh?!

Thanks for looking!
