This is my last card challenge at Sisterhood of Scrap. It is called an easel card and I loved making them and will be making more.

Jean Marie gave us a challenge for Monday to create a layout using all white with a black and white photo. Here is what I created. I used fleece for the background behind the photo and all my flowers are made from fleece using a sizzix die. I also used a die for the swirls and then embossed them. The snowflakes are from a punch. The challenge this week on Frosted Designs was to a Monochromatic Challenge.

This week at Frosted Designs we were to use a transparency, vellum or acrylic on your card, layout or project. The whole sheet is a blue and white checked transparency overlay by Dena's Closet. I cut out the gate with Cricut Ornamental Iron, the fence and flower pots are sizzix die cut as well as are the green leaves (which are made with vellum). I made the black flowers. Sorry for the glare on the one side. Thanks for looking.

This week's challenge was to use paint on our layout or card on Frosted Designs. I painted around a circle piece of chipboard for the design on the layout. I made the flowers and the pink flowers are from a vine I purchased. I added a little white paint to the teal colored flowers as well. I used my sizzix for the vines.

I love it when one layout works for 2 challenges. The challenge at Artful Delight was to use a sketch and for Sisterhood of Scrap it was to use only new items purchased within the last 3 months. Also, I used the backing of a RAK Helen sent me, it is the big flower looking embellishment down toward the bottom left. It was just too cool to throw away. I punched paper out from the middle of the paper to make the flower.
