Magnolia Down Under Challenge #34

If you love a fun challenge with Magnolia Stamps, then you need to head over to Magnolia Challenges Down Under.  Each week they have exciting challenges.  This week the challenge is to create an Easel Card.  If you've never made one of these, well now is the time - they are so much fun and I will def. be making more of these very soon.  And they are super simple too......
Anyway, here is my Easel Card:
I've used Tilda writing in Diary, one of the new stamps from the Raising the Ceiling Collection.
Alot of my cards have been pink/green in colour lately - that's because I'm really loving the Basic Grey pattern paper Lemonade.  There are so many pretty patterns in this one!
I've included lots of pictures with this post, just to show you how the card sits when open and all the pretty embellishments that I've used. 
Notice the doilies - cream and pink - and the yoyo flowers - these are items that you will find in my new Etsy shop - take a peek!  I will continue to add more yummy goodies.

These small flowers have been made with a punch called Punch a Bunch - it's the sweetest little punch which I got from Bizzy Becs (a clearance line)  There are three small flowers to punch out, each slightly different size.  I've layered them onto my mat pack, then pierced the centre and then adding the silver brad.  By squishing each layer, you get a tiny 3D flower.
This is a view of the card when it's sitting up in position and you can see the easel effect.
And here is the card laying flat.  My card measures 14cm x 14cm.  For details on how to make these Easel Cards, you can visit Jodi, one of the Design Team members from the MDUC - she has some easy instructions to follow.

Thanks for the fabulous challenge Kellie.
