My First Easel Card For Isabella's "Scrap" Challenge

Welcome to our weekly challenge at Isabella's Sketchbook!
This week our challenge is to use scraps from your stash or use items on hand but try to use nothing new!
I used some scraps of paper from my Dotty paper from PTI and some old stickers that I've had for years from Jolee's Stickers called Rose Vellum.  I'm glad these beautiful stickers finally made it out of my stash and onto a card!  My main butterfly image is from Isabella's digi boutique and it is called Butterfly 1.
For my card I decided to try to make an easel card.  I've never attempted one before but I found a very easy tutorial on You Tube with some basic instructions on how to assemble it.  I've included the video here for any of you who are interested. 

The amazing ladies on Isabella's design team are VERY skilled at making easel cards and it is from them that I first learned about these unique cards.  I've been admiring them for months and when I came across this easy video tutorial, I just new I had to make one! 

Make sure to check out all of the wonderful digi images at Isabella's boutique and join in our fun weekly challenge!  You could win 2 free digi images and the beautiful "I Won" badge!

Also make sure to check out all of the amazing creations by our design team!  You are sure to be inspired, we have some of the best talent around!

That's all for now, thanks for visiting the old blog!
Have a great day!  I already am!
