This is my card for CC486. Barbara is our hostess and her challenge colors are: old olive, calypso coral and daffodil delight. Dessert option is to make a fancy fold card. I decided to go with an easel card. See tutorial here. I haven’t made one in a long time so thanks Barbara for the push.
This is the closed view of the easel card.
My images and sentiments are from the Waltzingmouse set “half pint heroines”. I stamped the image and colored with the new SU blendabilities in old olive and daffodil delight. My calypso coral color is a Copic marker. I then fussy cut the image to place in the scene.
My outdoor scene was created with a combo of Cheery Lynn Designs, MFT, and PaperTreyInk dies. I made this card for a graduation party we are going to this weekend.
My thought process for the scene is the graduate leaving her home for college. Hence, the houses, hills and hot air balloon.
That’s my card for this week. Hope you can play along with us. You may be the next color challenge favorite and have your card featured on our Pinterest board. See the board here.

Your card is a delight, Mary. I have never made an easel card but this one may just be my big inspiration. I love how you have shown the home/town leaving behind as she leaves on a new adventure. Nicely done!
