My first slanted easel card

The wonderfully talented Jacqui has started a tutorial blog and that's where I found the instructions to make a slanted easel card. I love trying different shaped cards and think this is really effective. Of course they aren't easy to photograph. The image is from Little Claire, coloured with Promarkers of course. Papers are Henbury Lane with ric rac braid, Prima flowers and punched leaves. I added a little card candy and a Nestie die cut to the sentiment to hold the front in place.


I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Little Claire Anything goes
Secret Crafter Stamped flower
I love Promarkers Birthday
Paper Sundaes Sundae Topping Bar (pink and flowers)
