WOJ #71 - Easel Card

**This is pre-scheduled, so I hope this posts on the correct day!  Hubby and I are having a blast in Vegas....I can't wait to get home and show you some pictures! **

Welcome to another challenge over at the WOJ Challenge Blog!  WOW there were lots of amazing enteries this past week, I can't wait to see who wins the amazing Birdie Stamp Set! :)

Seeing how the rage in the craft world lately is easel cards, that is our challenge for you this week...create an easel card, and remember to use a WOJ stamp! :)  I absolutely LOVE easel cards...I love how you can display them easily but how much fun they add to a regular card!
 Seeing how the weather is finally starting to get warmer in here in Wisconsin I thought I would make a spring card to share with you!  As you can see the bottom panel is still blank; I left it that way so I can add the correct sentiment when I go to give it! :)
I've used Dreamy Willow with Flowers; she is from last year's summer kit....and I am sad to say this is the first time I inked her up....poor thing!  Now she is getting some lovin' though! :)  Willow was masked and I used the Fall Grass stamp to create my background.  Papers are K&Company McKenna papers and I am LOVING this paper pack....I've had it for a while now and have just decided to pull it out and use the papers....I know Bev loves this set too and I definitely can see why!
Willow was colored with Copics and Spicas.  I've used Spring Flower Soft in Willow's bouquet and on some of the flowers on the ground.
My flower collection consists of Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, Prima Hydrangea, and some other flowers and jewels that I picked up at HL.  I have added LOTS of stickles to make them all sparkle!
And one more view so you can see all the dimension.  I hope you have enjoyed this cutie as much as I enjoyed making her! :)

I can't wait to see all of your amazing creations when I get back from vacation!
