  1. Love your little easel, will have to keep an eye out for one in Ikea, hope they have them in the UK.

    Love the bright colours you have used and those flowers really pop off the card.

  2. Love the card and the easel what a bargain. I know only other crafters understand our excitement over little things like a .99 wooden easel...he he.

  3. really love the vibrant colors!

  4. Great card, and you are right, the easel is the bomb :) The flowers on the card, are really wonderful

  5. This is such a nice, bright card. I have a hard time with brights, but you gals are rockin' these cards out! (And yay on the 99 cent find!)
