Another try with an easel card

Well, my last easel card was so successful (thanks to Cec's wonderful instructions) that I decided to try it again! I'm quite pleased with this one as well. I decided to make it pretty simple for a couple of reasons (1) I wanted to focus on trying to work out the easel part and (2) the image was a larger and more detailed one than I usually use so I wanted that to be the focal point.

Speaking of the image. I got this amazing digi FREE from Phindy for joining in on all of the 1000 member celebration challenges on her PCP page! How cool is that??!!

So this card is for Phindy's Place Challenge - 3, 2, 1 Go! Recipe challenge. I used 3 brads, 2 papers, and 1 image. The card is also for Creative Inspirations Challenge - Glitter, Glamour, Girlie. Poor Mr. Brown isn't feeling too comfortable on this pink and purple card but he'll suffer through it to make Mrs. Comfy happy! She wanted him to wear a pink shirt and purple tie to match her girly and glitzy outfit but that's where he drew the line!! (oh, the stories I make up while I color!!)

Well, I should go get in bed now and enjoy my extra hour of sleep (thanks to Day Light Savings) but instead I think I might use my extra hour for crafting :)!
