Slightly different Easel Card

Whilst blog hopping recently I came across a card from this talented lady. I love the shape and way it looks so wanted to give it a try. 

What better way to give it a try than to try and impress the lovely Kerry over at Ladybug Crafts Ink. It was Kerry's 21st *cough**cough* birthday last thursday and I made up a small box of smelly's for her, decorated some choccys, (forgot to take a picture of these! but the lovely Kerry just killed her battery and sent me some!) and made a fabulous easel card like the one above! 

Now, I will warn in advance as I had to take a few shots to get a good enough picture! LOL 





So, what do you think? I bought the papers after seeing one of my teamies using them (can't remember if it was Sue or Mary?) and I knew I just had to have them! 

The papers are SEI Chickadoo, the stamp is of course a beautiful Ruby Stamp called Flower Ruby, the sentiment is also from Ladybug Crafts Ink called It's only words 1.

Now onto the choccys ... 



Again the same papers used as I did on the easel card, and also the sentiment! 

I loved making this easy easel card, and plan to make many more!!
