Spring Bunch Easel Card

…then I will send rain on your land in its season,
both autumn and SPRING rains, so that you may gather in
 your grain, new wine and olive oil.
Deuteronomy 11 : 14

Welcome to Digi Desserts Fridaze in connection with My Paper Crafting !    We, on the Design Team, are to create a project using a Digital File from the vast selection at every Friday, share them with You and encourage You to visit over there, get the FREE Digi File for today, make a project with it and link it for all to see.  The ‘winning’ designer is highlighted next week as a Guest Designer!   It’s an easy and fun thing to do on the weekend! 

For this week’s project I used the Free File offered last week on Digi Desserts Fridaze.  It’s the ‘Spring Bunch ds’ and comes in several color choices.  I used the original color file for this card and have printed several more of this one and several of the other choices to make other cards in the near future.  I really like the file and have ideas to use it various ways.  I used the ‘Decorative Oval Frame Set cf’ for the shape of the Easel Card and tied the pieces together with a ribbon and folded a baking piece to make the easel.  Here is my card –

*  This closed view shows the bow that ties the 2 pieces together at the top.  I added a pearl-head 'stickpin' to the bow on the front.  (Ellen at KittieKraft has a great videos on making tiny bows on her site -  - along with many other tutorials!)
*  This shows the front propped on 3 Gems.
*  I love this sentiment that I found several years ago and have used often - because the last word is my last name - and I do love flowers!  I typed it in Word using several fonts and printed it in two colors.
*  This is the view from the back of the card -

Here are the files I used -

We invite YOU to participate in our Digi Dessert Fridaze weekly posts.  Spring is a time of "new beginnings" and we love to see things "take root, blossom and grow”, we decided it was a good time to announce some changes to our Challenges and Link Ups.  Here is the link to Melin’s explanation of how things will work now.  Be sure to pop over there and be included in the creative fun! 

Be sure to come back here often as I showcase other Paper Crafted Projects and Photo Digital Restorations that I make – several days each week.  Sign up to receive my Posts so you’ll know when I’ve posted something – usually 3 to 4 times weekly.  Tuesdays every other week are Cutting files from MPC – Thursdays are Tags and ATCs – Fridays are Digi Files from MPC -  Other days may be other projects!
