Easel Card- Paper Playtime # 55

It's time once again for another new challenge at Paper Playtime.  For this week the challenge is to make an easel card.  For someone who makes mostly standard  A2 cards , it's really nice to make something  different.
I really need to challenge myself more often.
I'm not totally pleased with how this card turned out.  I stamped the sentiment on after I embossed it and...
well... as you can see,  not very good.  I didn't have time to make another card  so please do accept my apologies.

Supplies I used:
         The Floral Shoppe --  2.00 & 2.50 in.
         Cindy Lou --  frame  3.75in
         DCWV "Doodlin Around" stack
         American Crafts cardstock
         Stampin Up  "Butterfly Prints"  --  sentiment & butterfly stamp
                              Butterfly punch
                              Inks - Island Indigo & Chocolate Chip
        Tim Holts Alterations embossing folder
         RicRac ribbon was found in my stash

Don't forget to go look at the fabulous projects the other designers created.  You can also join in on the challenge, so start creating!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!!
