LOC Framed Bird Queen

I have created this card using the Layers of Color Bird Queen cling art stamp.  When I saw the colour combination from the CR84FN Colour Challenge

I knew I had to use the the leftovers that I have from the first card class that I taught at my local Craft Shop Scraps'n'Stuff- you can see those cards here

Easel cards are always fun to make and ALWAYS looks great!!  There are so many ways to decorate it!

I have used the Bird Queen cling art stamp from Layers of Color - it is such a fabulous stamp - I love the uniqueness of it!!  I have added the corners from the Vintage Corners from Cuttlebug - these are a favourite of mine and finish off cards so beautifully.

For the base I used the DP from Teresa Collins, cutting out one of the crowns with an Oval Punch and popping it up on foam tape.  The large and small flowers from the Nature Walk art stamp set have been cut out and chalked, they are also popped up on foam tape and had a large pearl added to the centre.

This card is for the following Challenges:
CCEE Stampers - Distress Your Papers
Delightful Challenges - Use Your Scraps
