Shaped Easel Card and some very good news!



Now I've been thinking of trying to do one of these shaped easel cards for a while but didn't know how. Today I decided to just have a go and see what happens.
I used my Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge to cut out an apple. I've inked the leaf with distress ink. The stamp is MacKenzie from Sugar Nellie, this has been inked with Memento and coloured with Copic markers. The corners have been shaped with a Cloud corner chomper from We R Memory Keepers.
The papers are from Basic Grey and DCWV. The ribbons are from Cosmo Cricket.
The flowers, gems and buttons are from my stash.
This card is for the following challenges:
Daring Cardmakers - Easel Card
C.R.A.F.T Challenge - Shaped Card
A Spoonful Of Sugar - 3D Something
Papertake Challenge - Do Something Different

Now on to my very good news! I have won last week's challenge over at the Just Magnolia blog and will be joining them as guest designer for the month of May - I'm so excited!
