AAA Birthday (Easel Card)

 I'm so delighted to be Guest Designer at AAA Birthday Challenge and they have a fun challenge for us.

This is only my 2nd ever Easel card. I'm not sure why, because they really are very pretty. 

I die-cut the wreath from the watercolour paper and then coloured with with Karin Markers. 
Then I placed it back in the paper from which it was die-cut. It was then backed with Vellum paper. 
Just for fun, I then turned it in to a shaker by adding some sequins and backing again with Vellum. 
Next I stamped the little bird and placed at the base of the wreath. 
This panel was then matted with Kraft card and adhered to the card base. 
(I wont explain how I made the easel as there are lots of tutorials on Youtube and other search engines.)
I made a small panel to sit on the inside of the card, matting again with Kraft card. I then stamped the sentiment with the co-ordinating markers, blending with a wet brush on the stamp and card. 
To finish, I  added some cut-offs from to match the wreath.

Die: Poppy Stamps Adriana Wreath
Stamp: Penny Black Tweet Wreath; W&W The Big, the Bold & You

I hope you'll visit the AAA Birthday Challenge see what the Design Team have created and will be inspired to join in the challenge.
