TMS #316

Happy Tuesday morning!
There is another great sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches!
I had a lot of fun putting together my very first easel card!  I had never made an easel card before, so this was a great new challenge for me!  If you're intimated, don't be, you can adapt the sketch and use the oval and circle elements on a regular A2 card.

This week we are sponsored by SLS Lines.
As noted in their bio on the Etsy shop:  Welcome! I sell digital stamps and papers with a fun and quirky vibe. There are cute fairies and tons of cats too. I'm happy to make custom orders as well. You can find me on Facebook with lots of news about new and upcoming products! https://www.facebook.com/SLSlines

Here's this week's sketch.....

and my card....
I used an SVG file to cut my card base and gingham mats.  I inked the edges of the mats with some Distressed ink before adhering to the panel.  On the base panel, I also added a few stamped flowers.  I used one of the flowers from the Whimsical Flowers set from SLS Lines for the vertical panel.  I paper pieced the bloom and colored the stem with Copics. I cut out the different layers of petals and popped them up.  I also added some Wink of Stella to the petals for a bit of glimmer.  A few sequins and a little twine bow finish off the card.
I had a lot of fun making this card.  I hope you give it a try.

Take a look at what the other DT members have created....

Remember, you don't have to make an easel card.  Just adopt the elements like Jessi did!
Have fun, can't wait to see what you create.
