Auntie's Easel

I made this card for my Aunt's Birthday yesterday.  I wanted to do something different for her, so I decided to make an easel card as I'm not sure she's ever seen one.

I used a lovely Hanglar girl with a fab floral headband and mounted her onto some DP which I punched with a PATP from Martha and mounted onto some colour-matched card to make the pop up element for the easel.  I added some flowers and hid the wires between the layers and finished with a metal butterfly brad that dangles and flutters.  There is a close up shot below.  The Happy Birthday is from a Stempelglede set, and the just for you is a new "mini cling" but I forget the brand name - sorry - currently in Hobbycraft for a £1 each.

It fits a couple of themes for challenges so is entered as follows:

Papertake Weekly  - Anything Goes + Flowers

Res-Q Challenge - Get in Line - your project must have a straight line on it - and my line of punching is on lined paper so I think that counts twice ;-)

Top Tip Tuesday - Girlie - can be anything girlie this week and this certainly is :-)  Loving their top tip this week to create a banner from ribbons - lovely idea.
