Charisma Cardz 3/10/11 - Easel Does it

Today over at Charisma Cardz, the challenge is to create an easel card. I haven't made one of these in so long, this was a perfect challenge for me.  For such a striking card, I can't believe how easy they are ... You'll be seeing more of them around my 'house' for sure!

In the meantime, The Stamping Boutique is sponsoring Charisma's challenge, so I picked this adorable Irish Dancer to put on my card. (I also followed yesterday's Splitcoast Stampers sketch challenge.) She was colored with Copics, then airbrushed with the light green background before cutting her out with the round open scalloped Spellbinders die (can't think of the official name of the die right now, I'm sure you all know, lol). I tweaked her with some white gel and clear glitter gel pen then added some SU glittery gold brads.

For the panel on the inside of the card, I stamped "Celebrate" from one of the SU sentiment sets directly onto the SU designer paper, celery mat then garden green mat that was border punched with the fleur di lis design.

I'm actually very pleased with this one - Makes me want to be Irish, lol.

Thanks for popping in for a 'look-see' - head on over to Charisma Cardz to see what else they came up with.
