Easel Card

Lucky you stopping by to check out my LOVE-ly card. 
You should have come over from
I created this extended easel Anniversary card for my Sister's 50th celebration. The soft, muted card stock is from DCWV . Lace and Linen Stack) which was so wonderful to work with. The stamp is Anna Griffin and the glitter # 50 on the hearts, is of course, Stickles. The soft pink and white pearl flourish is from Recollections. The hardest part...creating an envelope to hold the oversize easel card. Once completed, I added a Martha Stewart punched border, some hearts and off to the party we went! They, or should I say "SHE" LOVED it!!!
