Had very few supplies at hand so used what I had. I did the basic easel card for today's WT...easel cards are a favorite of mine, although I often have trouble with the easel part not staying put, not sure what I'm doing wrong. Any ideas?
This is also for yesterday's WCW and SC. I thought the circle of the dandelion would work for the sketch and I Zentangled my favorite border tangle for show the angles of the sketch. Thanks for some super challenges.

Lovely artistic card Jean. I like the colours you chose. I’m not good with fold cards but one thing I noticed with my stopper was that the more I layered it the better the card stood up. Maybe that’s the key but I’m sure some of the experts on folds will advise. Happy day

I like the easel for your dandelion card. It is so pretty and even more so with the awesome zentangling. You are so good with that. Love how you used the Brushos.

You did great challenge combining with your limited time and supplies, Jean. Because of the colour palette, your dandelion reminds me of sea urchins, which I really like except for the time I stood on one. The blue piece at the bottom adds to the ocean feel.
I usually burnish the fold on the easel really well, folding it both ways, so that is very flexible. That might help?

yes I agree totally with Sabrina, burnish the folds is the best way to keep your card stand up, don't put the bumper too far or too close, try it before you glue it, and a double layer is a good idea to help a bit more, lovely card, pretty colors, when I travel I don't take any supplies, holidays are without crafting for me, but I understand that's not the same for every one
