Miniature Easel Card

Happy Friday everyone and thanks so much for taking the time to visit my blog.

I had some time to play so I decided to to the challenge at All Sorts, which is "Miniature 3"".
I decided to do another easel card, my second one. I am really liking this card style. Here is the link to the tutorial I used, I just changed my card stock to 3" x 6".

My cute image is from a free clear set by Adam Pescott that was included in one of the UK paper crafting magazines that I purchased here in the US from Joann's. I haven't used the images yet, and this was my chance to get them out. So so cute!!

It's been stamped with memento tuxedo black ink on couture 80lb card stock. Then colored with my derwent coloursoft pencils and blended with baby oil. I used a circle nestabilities shape to cut it out, sponged the edges with apricot ink and then adhered it to a scallop circle nesties shape. It was then popped up to the card front with some dimensionals.

The card front was made using Martha Stewart's around the page punches (layered arches), and some retired stampin up designer paper. To make the punched square fit my 3x3 inch paper I cut it out at 3 1/4 then punched all around. It was a perfect fit.

I've embellished with some apricot ribbon, sticky tiny pearls, brads and of course some stickles glitter. I have left the sentiment off because I am not sure what or who I will use this card for, but it would make a great card to include with a gift or maybe just a cute tiny note card.I am also entering this card to a couple of other challenges:
That is all for today, I am off to do some fun design team work.
Hope you'll have a fantastic weekend!!
