Timeless Tuesday on Friday?!?!

I've been a serious slacker for challenges this week, but I made time to do the FTTC53 challenge to make an easel card. I liked the purple and green color combo so much on the previous card I posted that I used the same colors for this one. I used the Flourishes Calendar set #2 Iris for this card. I colored the image with Tombows and matted it with New Leaf and Plum Pudding cardstocks. The DP is Wisteria by Basic Grey and the colors in these photos are nothing close to what I see IRL. I used a slit punch and a couple of acrylic gemstones on the sides of the main image, and added some new leaf and plum pudding ribbons on the bottom. I glued 2 buttons together to hold the card up and adhered them to the double ribbons.
Here's another view of the card..................these easel cards are tricky to photograph to see all the details. The sentiment is by SU and this one will be going to Operation Write Home along with a lot of other cards I've made.
That's it for me today, but thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
