My project to share with you is a twisted easel card

 My adorable image is Uptown Girl Catherine Nibbling Chocolate. That is what every girl wants for Valentines Day, chocolate along with bling, dinner, adoration and pampering! Oh Yes!!

  I colored her in Copics and added Aged Ivory Frantage around her.

A closeup of the cut a parts from the paper pad Graphic 45 "Place In Time" I love this paper pad for embellishing my cards.  I also used Shari Baldy's heart die too.

On the base is a cute card from the Graphic 45 paper along with Tim Holz Muse Tokens, pearls and ribbon from my stash.  Along the edges I used a Magnolia Doohickey lace border die.

Here is the side view of the easel card.

Here is the twisted easel card laying flat

You can never get too much girly frill for Valentines!

Let's HOP!!!

  26. I adore the elements on this card. I have this stamp and have been intimidated to use it. Now I see what you've done with it and will take it out and give it a whirl. I think what catches my attention the most on this card is the color and the elements. I love the red and brown theme and your diecuts and embellishments are darned awesome. GREAT card and I'm going to save this to my desktop as a reminder of some things I can attempt on my Valentine card to my husband. Hugs, Gail

  27. An absolutely astounding card, Kelly - what a riot of Valentine detailing... the delicate heart die-cuts are so wonderful scattered about, and I so love the sepia with red colour palette - a brilliant, brilliant creation.
