Easel Cards at LLLC

Good morning!! Had any more snow around your area!? We've been so lucky here in the north east - we've managed to avoid the majority of it, I just hope this luck continues. It's bad enough on the roads as it is.

Anywho, enough of all that. I have a happy, spring time sorta card to share with you today, for LLLC Inspiration Friday.

Easel Cards

This card is pretty similar to the card I made last week with Marci with Cat - but the girl is just too cute and I couldn't resist. Her hair is fabulous for practising the smooth blends and stuff that I'm after at the minute. :)

Why is it so freakin' hard to take a photo of an easel card?! No angle is flattering. Gahhhh!! This was like my 7th attempt. Hopefully you get the idea. I used more papers from Basic Grey Sweet Threads collection. Aren't I being good? :) HA! 
I added a Whimsy sentiment alongside 'Mum' using Jenni Bowlin alpha stickers. My last Prima flower in that gorgeous shade of pink, some of my new doodlebug brads.. a new flower from WOC. Is it a baby's breath flower?! I gotta check that.

YR000, YR00, E11, R20
Cinammon, Cocoa, Walnut
Cocktail Pink, Salmon Pink, Carmine
Forest Green, Lush Green, Pine
Honeycomb, Ginger, Spice
