Celebrating the Next Chapter

Happy May first from all of us at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.  I'm here today bringing you our new May Sponsor - TNT Artspiration and our new blog challenge.

For my project card, I selected their image Bless This Nest.  Here's the easel card I made using this image.

 I used Copic markers to color the image and a large doily die (discontinued) to put the image in the center display.  The front panel is covered by coordinating pieces that are cut at 
2-3/8 x 5-3/8, leaving a little extra space in the center to add another score line.  On the inside back, I added a 1 inch coordinating strip of paper and a wooden leaf to hold the top thus making the easel. 

I hope you will check out the other Design Team cards on the new Challenge Blog HERE and enter yours also.

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
