Egg Easel Card

Kathy dared us this week with this dare;

Another Dimension 

  not Time Warps, Little Green Men from Mars, or anything else 
  I just don't want to see any flat, regular sort of cards this week - instead I'd like to see lots of interesting folds and shapes; Stepper cards, Card in a Box, Pyramids, Flip-it type cards..... Anything goes as long as the finished, standing-up card is more 3D than 2D. 

I tend to always make flat cards - mainly as I seem to get in a little bit of a pickle when it comes to making anything that requires precise measuring!  So I made an easel card, it does have an extra fold compared to a normal card so I'm sure that it fits the bill!

I used Lots of October Afternoon, Tattered Lace Dies, paper flowers and frame from stash, Buttons from here and Lace Ribbon and Button Twine from The Ribbon Girl.  The scallops are created from a mini Docraft circle punch and I added chalk ink and hand stitching.

I'm also entering this card into;

TFL - and have a very Happy Easter :)
