My first easel card! SNSDC37

I definitely stepped outside of my comfort zone on this card. I'm by no means constuction-inclined, so I was nervous from the get-go to make this card. It's an easel card and supposed to "stand up" like an easel. BTW, its for a blog challenge

I read the instructions a couple of times and it didn't make any sense to me until I saw the video. Then light bulbs started going on!

Here's what I used:
Cross image (Sweet N Sassy Digis)
Scattered Straw Tim Holtz Distressing Ink (Ranger)
Curved Rectangles Nestabilities (Spellbinders)
Purple textured cardstock and kraft cardstock (The Paper Studio)
Pearls (Want2Scrap)
Flowers and leaves (unknown)
Double sided adhesive (unknown)
Gold mist (homemade by me!)
Prisma Pencils - PC917, PC1009, PC947, PC950, PC931, PC1028, PC941

I certainly had fun learning how to do this. I believe I might try it again at some point.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
