My first easel card

I prepared this card for two challenges:
- I love ProMarkers - Challenge #35 "Think Pink": Yes, obviously this is why I used so much pink in this card
- Passion for Promarkers - Week 72 Theme "Recycled": I used a flower I had crocheted a while ago for a scarf which I didn't use at the end

So this time I thought I could experiment making an easel card. It was easier than what I thought, so I will be making a bit more in the future. The problem that I had (and maybe that's why this card is definitely not one of my favourite ones) is that I didn't have any inspiration for the bottom part of the card. Oh well, next time I will look for more inspiration!

The stamp is from Lofty and Co Rubber Stamps - Oriental Lofty. I coloured it with ProMarkers.

I used Quite Contrary papers from  My Minds Eye. The sentiment is stamped and hot embossed.

The brad holding the flower was originally yellow, but I changed it with pink pigment ink and clear embossing powder. I do like the liberty of giving your brads any colour you want.

(Edit:) Forgot to say that for the first time I also used peel offs and lace Pin It
