My Turn!!!!

Good Sunday Morning and HAPPY EASTER! I wanted to post this card and ask for your help. This card was made by me for The Greeting Farm Royal Battle card contest I am part of Team New England. Last week the card created by Kristen (Scrap Creations) was wonderful and moved us into this round. This week's contest is all about creating an easel card, this is my first attempt at one, and getting you wonderful people to vote for it if you like it. You get 3 votes so it lets you vote for your favorite 3 cards! So if you have a minute go to The Greeting Farm and cast your vote. Thank you so much, Team New England really appreciates your votes!

It was really fun and easy making an easel card. I don't know why I didn't try before this. These 2 stamps I used were from a new set I just got this week from TGF. I couldn't wait to ink them up! I also couldn't resist popping up the birds and his hat like they actually in the air. It took some playing around but I even figured out a way to have the girl lay flat and then be brought back upright when I give the card to someone. The DP is the new paper from BG, Kioshi. I love, love, love everything about it, the colors, the designs it is just beautiful. I love these little Prima roses that I stumbled upon at Michaels, who would guess they would have something new and current there.

Here are a few other wonderful challenge that fit this card

Fab 'n' Funky Challenge #17-"Spring is in the Air" is the challenge for this week
