Circle Easel

Today's Challenge over at Catch The Bug, the challenge blog dedicated to Bugaboo images, is a colour one, MEXICO PINK:




I am certainly trying to get my money's worth from my Grand Nesties and so wanted to try a circle Easel using the scalloped ones. I love how it turned out and really enjoyed making this card.


I personalised it with an old Sizzix Set I have had for years and barely sees the light. I 3D foamed every other letter to make it fit!


The backgrounds were stamped using Melon Mambo ink from SU to match the cardstock, using a few Papertrey Ink stamp sets. The image is Birthday Penguin Cake by Bugaboo.


I then used my Papertrey Ink Number Dies to make the 18 and propped them up to create the stopper.


I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Crafty Ribbons - Easel Card     Joyful Stamper - Anything Goes
Poodle Parlour - Monochromatic     Charisma Cardz - No Flowers
Make It Monday - Anything Goes     Shelly's Images - Use a Number

THIS CARD WON SILVER MEDAL AT SHELLY'S IMAGES!
