Black Eye Susan Easel card

Happy Holiday Season! Today is a start for a new challenge at the Stamping Sensation. Our theme is simple: Anything goes with stamp and ribbon. I made an easel card which was inspired from Autumn. Although, then I look outside, the weather is exactly the same. Snow, where are you? It's December already! 

Our sponsor this month is Crafty Ribbons and this is the fabulous prize for one lucky winner

They have wonderful ribbon selection. I used two of the on my card. 15mm Yellow Sheer Ribbon was pleated behind the image panel with double sided tape. I love how it looks. I also added cotton lace to both sides of the diagonal fold. 

I used old stamp from Alota named Black Eye Susan. Image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and it's colored with Promarkers. Edges of the image layer are inked with Cracked Pistachio Distress ink. 

Sentiment says "Happy Birthday". It is popped up with foam tape to act like a stopper for the easel. 
All the burgundy matting layers are made out of white cardstock. I just colored the edges with marker. 

For embellishments I used square self adhesive rhinestones. Edges of the pattern papers are inked with Fossilized Amber Distress ink.

Materials used:
Stamp Credits: Alota (Black Eye Susan);
Coloring Medium: Promarkers;
Inks: Memento (Tuxedo Black), Distress Ink (Cracked Pistachio, Fossilized Amber); 
Dies: Nellie Snellen (Photo Frames), Spellbinders (Classic Ovals Large, Labels Eighteen), Cheery Lynn Designs (Fanciful Flourish Right);
Cardstock: White, Prima (Jody Lee Butterfly);
All others: Crafty Ribbons (15mm Sheer Ribbon - Yellow, cotton lace, square rhinestone embellishments), Foam tape, Double sided tape;  

Thank you for the visit!
