Birthday, Slim Line, Easel Card

      I played a bit with an idea while making this DT card for Your Scrapbook Place and did something I've not seen before, a slim line, easel card !  Our theme is always Anything Goes.

     Our sponsor this month was Bugaboo Stamps and they supplied the images used by the DT.  Then, rather suddenly, the shop closed without any notice!  So, we're going to offer the challenge winner a prize which will include the images used by the DT on their inspiration projects.  I'm so sad that Bugaboo is closed.  I adore all their images and love working with them.  

     On my card today, I used an image called "Rose Block Trio" and, despite it being a silhouette style, I still managed to color it with ProMarkers.  I used CS textured with my 'Linen' EF and folded into a lengthwise easel.  I added pink ribbon and green pearls, using those same pearls as the easel stopper.  The bow is hand-tied and I added a gem to it.


     Happy Crafting and come play in our challenge.  NanaConnie

Beautiful card. We are all stunned about Bugaboo shutting down. They were some of the first digital images I learned to color on. [Bunny]

What a beautiful card Connie. I've never seen a slimline easel card before. The image is gorgeous and your colouring is perfect. Thanks for joining us at Passion for Markers this week. Hugs, Denise x
p.s I agree with you about Bugaboo, it closed so suddenly which was a shock to many who love their images. Fingers crossed maybe it will re-open some time soon x x
