Crazy4Challenges #10 -- Easel Card



Frances Byrne (known by many of us as Stamp Owl or Hootsie) is our hostess for the month of November. I was not at all surprised by her choice for our first challenge this month, as I know that she likes to use various card folds and configurations. Our goal this week was to make an easel card.


This is my virgin easel card AND my first card with a digital image (I think???). This image is by Kraftin' Kimmie's Stamps. The first picture was taken straight-on, but I wanted to include the second one so you could see why it is called an easel card.
Now be sure to check out the following blogs for more team cards and details about their creations.
Have a great day....and please, if you have the time, play along with us this week. Details are on the team blog (link is above).
