Baby Boy Easel Card

When I saw this tutorial at Splitcoaststampers for an easel card,
I knew I had to give it a try.

It looked a little intimidating, but was actually a piece of cake!

I'm very pleased with my first attempt and will let the pictures speak for themselves :

Adorable, right?

I'm entering this card in the weekly challenge over at Sugar Creek Hollow.
It's a color challenge this week using cream, blue, and brown.
And since that is one of my favorite color combos I had to jump on board.

That precious vintage image is from The Graphics Fairy.
I can't say enough wonderful things about her gorgeous images.

Products Used:
DCWV matstack : Linen Closet
Prima pearls
ZVA Creative bling
Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Squares & Eyelet Circles
Tim Holtz Distress Ink : Tea Dye
Liquid Pearls : Platinum
