I need a card for my sis in law and I know her fav. color is purple so when I saw this lovely card in our queen for the week...http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...;ppuser=132381 I got the idea of this little girl, especiallywhen I saw her pretty purple hat. I also saw this fun tiger one...http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...;ppuser=132381, It gave me the idea to do another Easel card which are so fun. Go see Ina's wonderful gallery its def. a great tour..:0)
I actually with luck hit 2 other challenges. At ODBD it is to have clouds or sunshine, which worked out super, as I havent been able to make it there for a while.
The other challenge is free for all on friday's which is all about weather. Here is has been warm and sunny so perfect for this lil one to have a stroll and a rest maybe in a meadow.
I colored her with water crayons and the water pen, cut her out. Sponged the clouds with paper towel, sponged a bit of grass. Then I had a bit of paper that had the wood grain in it and with scissors scraggly cut the one end so it looks like it is broken off and sponged the edges a bit with a darker brown. Added the punched out grass, which I got form my super ma-ma as well as she shared this sweet punch. added the pink stickers and for the bottom part I added flower soft for like a mossy meadow, adn some little purple flowers to match. I then remembered flowers need a butterfly so I punched out a little butterfly and colored it purple and pink and then added the glitter...lol...I know, I know...he-he, snuck it on again...lol, Oh and raised her up with a foamie..:0)
I am not sure If I am going to put more sentiment in that part or not, with the flower soft now there it might not stick, maybe just might leave it as is , but looks like its missing something...ack..not sure what to do...lol...again...but here it is for now.
thanks again to Ina for a start on my inspiration,,,have a super fun week as our reinging queen. I so enjoyed your gallery. and for the other challenges as well to get the thinking cap on..thanks all for visiting...:0)

This beautiful card just shouts warm spring day! I love the apple blossoms and that adorable little girl and the use of purple blossoms. I love how you created the moss on the easel base! This card does not need anything else....it's perfect the way it is! Thanks for your kind comments and for playing along today!
