Birthday Bash Easel Card!

Hi! I'm sorry I've been gone so long! Thanks for visiting today to see what I've been up to! I think about papercrafting all the time, but don't actually get much of it done lately! KWIM? Well, it's another busy week as we get closer to the end of the school year! I won't bore you with all the details 'cuz I have a lot of card pictures to show and I think that's probably why you came!
The challenge this week was posted by Kay and she has given us a double challenge! We are to make an Easel card using a stamp that has never seen ink! I used FOUR of them! (the leaf stamps don't count-they're from Papertrey and I've inked them lots). Please visit the Birthday Bash Blog for all the details and where to show off your card!

There is a lot of strawberry paper out there now, but my favorite is from Basic Grey's Nook and Pantry set. I like that it has pink in it and is easy to use with brown because of it's aged look. The dotted paper on the bottom is from October Afternoon. Some of the stamps are from one Sweden's stamp kits, but have been added to the regular collections. Please visit Diana's store to check out what's in stock - MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS.
I see the strawberry from the background is on sale now!
.


I used a lot of colors and didn't keep track this time-Sorry! If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments and I will get back to you! (My "reds" started with R20 and went to R29, building the color with most of the markers in between!)
Thanks again for coming by! I DO appreciate it so much! Wishing YOU a great day!
Cheryl
