Guest Designing at Fussy and Fancy - Easel Card

Hi Dreamers,
The lovely Designers over at Fussy Fancy Challenge Blog invited me to Guest Design for their Easel Card challenge!!!  Isn't that great!!??  I made an Easel card that uses a 4 1/4 x 11' piece of card stock.  This size base makes a nice sized card that will still fit into a regular A2 size envelope.

This is a large stamp (3 1/2 x 4 1/2") called Rebecca's Rose from Stampland.  I added a little bit of watercolored ink to the stamped image.  Here the side view.

I added a wide wired green ribbon bow with a paper flower glued to the knot of the bow.  


The sentiment stamped on the flat area is from Sweet N' Sassy stamps.  I used a brush loaded with ink to make the border around the sentiment.

Pop over and say hi to everyone over at Fussy and Fancy.  Make your own easel card and link it up while you are there!!

How about a few fun challenges for my Easel card!!
Fab and Funky: vintage
Craft room door: anything goes
Pile it on: vintage/shabby chic
