Easel Card

Greetings Earthlings-

Today's card was a toughie! I've never made an easel card before but Mo's challenge this week was just that. I had what I thought was a simple idea but the geometry of it almost drove me insane (er).  My 'cookie' wasn't straight. Nothing new to most of you, I know. So all the elements also needed to be slightly catty-wampus (Dad's words). The easel part wasn't so tough. Just don't start your first-ever easel with a scalloped circle!
The image is a digi stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil.  Her challenges are always fun and usually a challenge for me! You can find it here. I used a sentiment from TLC. I changed the color of some of the words with PSE8.

Here's a side-view.

Now I'm off to make a birthday card that is needed by MONDAY! Yikes!

Party On, Wayne.
