Easel-y amused

I have been wanting to make an easel card for weeks now and I was planning to definitely make one this week, then I saw that the challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges and Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge was an easel card! What perfect timing, and it was so much fun to do, I plan to make a few more of these in the near future, probably this week :) I used the sketch from over at Sketch Saturday, when I saw it I knew I would have to play along with this one, it was too fab not to! The giant snowflakes are sequins I found in Coles when I was grocery shopping :) They are blue but the colour has not really come out in the photos. I used the Winter Wonderland papers from Summertime Designs again, I am soooo in love with the snowflake DP. My stamp is one of the Xmas Sweeties from The Greeting Farm, I got these in the mail a couple of days ago and had them inked up as soon as I got a chance, they are so adorable. I have used my CuttleBug Textile embossing folder on the white card stock and whipped out my new nesties, yay! I have used glitter glue around the edge of the DP on the bottom of the card and down the edges of the striped paper strip, around the white card and on the fur parts of Anya's coat. I also got another chance to play with my new Fiskars snowflake border punch.
With this card I played along with the following challenges:
Crazy 4 Challenges - Easel card
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Snow much fun
Stamp Something Challenge - recipe - 1 ribbon, 2 papers, 3 embellishments
Thank you for looking, I had a lot of fun making this card and I hope you enjoy it too.
