Paris definitely isn't Square!

Hi Folks,

The challenge at In the Pink is Anything but Square, and this was my original idea for the challenge.  I love using this Marianne frame for an easel card.

I masked off the embossed frame before stamping - Stampendous stamp, and coloured with Worn Lipstick DI.  I distressed the embossed edges with the same ink.  A little bit of pale blue chalk for the sky and lots of Glamour Dust to the flowers.

I stamped the flowers again, fussy cut and added them with a sentiment for the base of the card.

I am also entering this card in :

  Charisma Cardz - Shaped cards
  Paperplay challenges - Fancy Folds
  Celebrate the Occasion - Shaped cards
  My time to Craft - More than 1 fold

I'm on a roll this week, 2 posts today!

Thanks for looking

Avril xx

So pretty Avril! I love the blush of pink and that delicate blue works perfectly. I've never made an easel card and I admire them greatly!

This is sooo pretty Avril, and definitely not square. I've got this die too, it does make lovely card bases, I've used it a few times.
Hope you have a great weekend. Thanks for all your lovely comments this week, it's so nice to have you with me. xx

Beautiful and elegant Avril, it would never have occurred to me to use that stamp on the circle card but it works beautifully.

Hope you have good weekend.
