Magnolia Down Under - Easel Card

Happy Friday to you all. Over at Magnolia Down Under they're asking for easel cards. I had actually started this card for Magnolia Stamp Lovers as they were asking for nautical cards. I didn't get this done in time for that and then saw Magnolia Down Under was doing easel cards, one of my favorites.

I had pulled out one of my Cricut cartridges called "Life's A Beach". On the cartridge it had a life ring. I increased the size of it to 6" and created this life ring. I then turned it into an easel card for the Magnolia Down Under challenge. I added some paper from Gartner's Voyage collection. I had bought this paper pack for my cruise layouts, but haven't gotten to them yet. I added some white nautical rope that was on one of our pool toys, (not anymore, lol). I googled nautical knots and tied a square reef knot on the inside of the card.

The beautiful Tilda is from the pirate collection called Pirate Tilda and colored her with my copics.

Well hope everyone is having a great day wherever you are. It is again, beautiful and hot here in Canada, so I'm off to the pool.

Hugs xx
