This has to be my favorite card I have made! I had so much fun putting it together and the easel card wound up being easier than I thought. A special card for a very special birthday this year for my sis-in-law (brother's wife). The photo inspiration is the bouquet that I carried in their wedding almost 16 years ago. It has made a beautiful flower arrangement in my guest room since then. Trying a new technique is sometimes out of my comfort zone, but when my other sis-in-law, Twinklestamper, posted a tutorial on her blog for easel cards, I decided to try one. I hope this becomes more than just a card and that my sis-in-law may enjoy keeping it up in her office. ColorThrowdown #81 challenge this week had the perfect colors that matched the silk flowers and beaded leaves that I had found at a local fabric store in the wedding supplies aisle.
