A Trio of Challenges

My friend Claire wanted to have a go at making an Easel card... I'd never even heard of them b4 but she sent me a link and after seeing the samples i figured how hard could it be!

Too simple is the answer but the results are just stunning in my opinion.. and you'll defiantly be seeing more of them from me.


I included 2 pics as I've still not learnt how to use my flash camera to get the best pic!!!

I used my most favourite 'Guardian Angel' gorjuss for Totally Gorjuss's 1st ever challenge.. there theme being 'Pink'... the fab Sketch is one by Caryn over at A Spoon Full of Sugar... and as i used my fav embellishments of paper flowers and pretty ribbon i entered it in this weeks Paper Play Challenge too!
Thanks for stopping by...
...and if you didn't already know i still have candy on offer!
