Scrapbook Essentials Challenge #5

Good Morning all, 2012 is skipping along a good clip already. A quick personal note before we get to all that carding goodness.

Happy 18th Birthday to my son Zach. You are such an amazing young man and you make me proud each and every day with your charming personality, caring ways and all around good guy status... mom loves you :)

 It is time for the 2nd challenge of the year with Scrapbook Essentials BC.

This week's challenge is an Easel card, I love this style of card but boy do I struggle to get a good picture.

I used basic layers for this card, the bird house and the sentiment were heat embossed and popped up with foam tape. I added a beautiful pink ribbon and resin rose to finish, both of these products along with this stamp set can be purchased in the Scrapbook Essentials BC online store.

Please head on over to the challenge blog to see what the other design team member have come up with.

Supplies: Cream and pink cardstock, Designer Paper-Basic Grey, Essential Stamps-Birdhouse Background 1, Essential Charms and ribbon-Scrapbook Essentials BC.



  1. Good Morning Sis,

    You're so bright and early today with your card. What more fitting than a bird theme - "early bird catches the worm" and all that :)

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ZACH! Hope he has a terrific day & year. Hmmm trying to remember 18...

    Love your easel card, I like them but wonder if some recipients know to fold them up?

    Love ya,

  2. Nice card Nina. Love the way you used the "Essential Charms" resin rose and ribbon.

  3. First off a big Happy Birthday to Zach.
