Let it Snow... Circle Easel Card

Happy Tuesday friends,

I want to share with you a circle easel card that I have been wanting to make for quite some time and am finally getting around to it.  I decided to add an extension to the card as a place to add a personal note.  I got the idea from Norma and her tutorial here.   I didn't do mine exactly like hers, but she did give me the idea, so I wanted to give her credit.  Thank you Norma!

My image is a Gurlee Girl image from Chelsea's store, and my flowers and most of the embellishments can be found at the McMahon Five Design's store.

This was alot of fun to make, and I think I will make some more for the upcoming holidays.

I hope you enjoyed my post today, and I want to thank you for your visit.  Please feel free to leave me a comment.  I always love hearing your thoughts about my work.  Have a wonderful day!
