Easel card

I created this card for a favorite Aunt of mine. She turns 86 on Monday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Using papers that were double sided and all coordinated which is one of the easier cards to design because everything went together. The card is 4 1/5" by 5.5". It started when I found these flowers in a scrapbook store in Pa. They are stitched on a netting fabric and are all strung together but can be cut apart and used separately. They are soft so they add dimension but are not bulky. Added the leaves from a stash of odds and ends. Added burgundy inking around the edges of all the papers. The 0val shape was added with foam squares on a scalloped oval from I think Storybook. I did cut several samples first on scrap computer paper so that is why I am not 100% sure of which one that I used.
The lace on the inside layer helps to keep the card open with a few other layers of paper and using a scallop punch on the lighter layer. The instructions for making this type of card were from Splitcoaststampers
