Happy Birthday Easel Card for Mum

Hello again!

This is the easel card I made for Mum's birthday last Sunday.  Lots more stitching too!
Tip - When you have stitched the whole way around the card and you finish off at the end, to tidy up loose ends, give the threads at the back a little tug and the front threads should start to come through to the back.  Pull them completely through, tie them together and tape down.

The double sided paper is from the My Mind's Eye, Quite Contrary range.  The sentiment is computer generated and cut out with labels one nestabilities die.  I stamped some flowers on it and put adhesive gems in the centre.  Then I inked victorian velvet distress ink around the edges. I cut the large scalloped circle with a nestability die and inked the edges with distress ink, then added the rabbit with foam pads.

Thanks for stopping by today :)
