Guest Designer Creation

Hi everyone!!!  I'm so excited to share this card with you.  
I created this for my Guest Designer spot at



I may have to do a video tutorial on this card and put it on YouTube....
if I do I will post it on here.  But for now I will tell you how it came to be..
As you can see this is an easel card.  It didn't start out that way though.  There is an awesome pocket card I make by doing some simple folds....but I decided I wanted to make a square one intead of an 5 1/2"x4 1/4"....so I experimented and it worked.  But while playing around with it I decided I liked it better with the pockets facing up.  Then I realized it would not stand up by itself.....and that is how it became an easel card :)

The beautiful pink flowered cardstock I used is off from Sherri Baldy's Little Sweeties CD-ROM (a MUST HAVE CD).  The adorable 3D image is one of Sherri Baldy's Besties called Blue Girl....she happens to be my favorite.  You can find Sherri Baldy's store HERE  The square doily looking edges were done with a Martha Stewart punch.  A round paper doily was folded and placed in the bottom pocket, and a tag in the top pocket.  I added some glittery self-adhesive trim to the edge of each pocket.  The stamped sentiments are from HOTP (at Paper Wishes) called Heartfelt Greetings.

Thanks for visiting....I hope you like the card :)

I decided to enter this gorgeous card in a few challenges :)
