Easel Mojo Thank-You

Good Morning Everyone!

Usually, when I read the challenges over at "Feline Playful", I'll see a challenge for a card with a unique fold such as an Easel Card or Gate-Fold card etc; but it never fails that when I sit down to work on it, I completely forget that I'm supposed to do it, until after I've already made a regular style card. Well, this one I was determined not to forget. I really like doing Easel cards. They are not nearly as difficult as they first appear; but I did have to watch a video over at SCS for a quick refresher.

For the front of the card I used the Mojo Monday sketch as my inspiration. I coordinated the colors around the pattern papers from the "Hopscotch" collection from Basic Grey. I used Cameo Coral, Sage Shadow, Blushing Bride, Dark Brown and Kraft. The flower and circle image at the bottom is a combination of images from OCL's "Fabulous Florals" and SU's "Circle Circus" I took a close up picture of the front of the card in order to show the embossing I did with the "Bloom Dots" embossing folder. I also took a side view picture so you can see the Easel Card design.

That's all for me today! Thanks so much for stopping by and spending some time with me. Have a great day and I'll see you all tomorrow!
