Michelle Perkett Challenge #47 - Girly With Some Bling!

Wow, another Tuesday, and another fun challenge at Michelle Perkett's Studio Blog.  This week it's all about the ladies!  Using one of Michelle's images create a card or project that is "Girly" and has some bling, and who knows maybe you will be our winner next week.  The winner will get one digital image of their choice from Michelle's Etsy Store.

This is "Carmen Cupcake", a new release this month, and she is perfect for this week's challenge.  I found a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers, and  youtube, for a "Pop-Up" easel card, and thought it would be fun to try.  I made it on a 6 x 6 inch card base, and the pop-up easel is glued or pop-dotted to the front of the card.  Here is a picture of the easel.

The easel is attached to a tag, and you use the ribbon at the top to pull it open, and it stands up like an easel card.  I love it!  It's very easy to do, and it can be modified to any size card.  I hope you'll give it a try.

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - Challenge #131 Sketch.
Incy Wincy - Challenge #61 Anything Goes!

I hope you will enter our challenge this week, and I look forward to checking out your entries.  Thanks for stoppiing by.
