Challenge #26 at CTO - Easel Birthday Card


Good morning! Welcome to another challenge at CTO. This week DT 2 was asked to make an easel birthday card. I like making easel cards once I get started, but for some reason I don't make many. I used The Paper Company cardstock for the card base and mats and found this cute DCWV pattern piece in my scraps. The chipboard charms are from a 3 Birds kit, but I couldn't leave them plain, added Stickles to two and Glossy Accents to the third. I used Baker's Twine from the Twinery and glitter brads from my stash to hang the charms.


The gems are from Michael's and the sentiment/cake slice stamps are from Inkadinkado. I also used my White Gelly Roll pen and a blue Zig marker for doodling and coloring.


Well, I hope you like my card. Please be sure to stop by the other DT members for inspiration and leave them a comment. We always love to get comments from you! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!
