SCRS Challenge #47 -- Wishing You Sunshine

It's time for an all new Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge! Each week we will post an all new challenge at this time (9 PM PST on Mondays). For all the details, please visit the SCRS blog. This week's challenge is to make an easel card. Beate has a great easel card tutorial on Splitcoast HERE.

It's been awhile since I've made an easel card.. I forgot how fun (and easy) they are! I used Rainy Day Ruby on my card today. I'm sending this off to a friend's mom and I am hoping that this brings a smile to her face. I paired Ruby with some paper from Cosmo Cricket's Odds & Ends. It's hard to tell in the photo, but the patterned paper on the bottom is full of uplifting phrases like "surrender your heart" and "embrace the moment". I also added a handmade flower (tatted by my SIL, Mary) and a little button which also helps the card to stand up in addition to being a decorative embellishment.

For more SCRS inspiration and details, please visit the SCRS blog to see the design team's wonderful creations and their individual blogs for more details:
