Anniversary card for FF

This card was made for the challenge at Forever Friends this round for Ribbon or Lace.  I also searched You Tube for something new to try for another challenge group I am in.  The challenge in this group is to find something you have never done before and then post the inspiration it came from.  I want to thank Luv Lee Scrappin for inspiring me to attempt to create something new.  I had never heard of this type of easel card before and was amazed by hers the moment it popped up on the screen.

Our sponsor this week at FF is Pink Gem Designs.  We got to choose out images and I really liked these cute little birds for my anniversary card.   I colored them with copics and colored pencils.  I added paper flowers where stamped flowers were.  I popped parts of the images for more dimension so they would show better since this is a shadow box card.  The lace is just a small scrap I had left and almost tossed.  lol  I used MS punches for the leaves and small butterfly.  The ribbon on the lace and around the inner as well as the outer edges of the shadow is new.  I used TH distress tool on the edges and then inked in Chestnut Roan.  The pp are from a mini stack by My Minds Eye. The two hearts on the bottom are an old sizzlet die. Added a few beads and of course stickles and calletd this card done.  lol  It is no where near as pretty as the one from the video but I am happy that I tried something new and it turned out at all.  lol  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Please come join us at FF for this fun challenge!  Many hugs to you all and may God be with you in whatever you do.

  20. I love this card, what a gorgeous easel card you've created. It is so romantic and has such adorable touches; I love the flowers, the lace and the bling! These are all elements that add to a striking card, who doesn't love some texture, visual sparkle, and depth. Amazing job! Perfect for the Opus Gluei theme and I'm so happy you came over to play with us!

  21. OK, I had to come and see what else you have created since I was hooked on the card you made for this week's Pink Gem Challenge (on which I have already commented), and I am in LOVE with your work! This circle easel card has put me over the top, and you may count me as your newest follower. You make the kind of cards that make me swoon - lots of color, texture, pattern and embellishments, especially flowers and lace and charms. I hope you won every challenge in which you entered this card! If there was a way to subscribe to your blog by email, I would. As it is, I will come to visit you as often as I can. Thanks so much for the lovely inspiration!
