Ooh La La Creations - Easel Cards

Yy'IThis week the theme at Ooh La La Creations is Easel cards.  Believe it or not I have never tried to make an easel card and you know what?  They are so stinking simple it's not even funny!  What I really like is the extra design room you get on the bottom!  I will need to try some variations on this card sometime soon in the near future...I'm thinkin a circle, a square maybe?  I think the possibilities could be pretty tremendous :)

I'm really liking how much flexibility these cards have, one of the best parts is the easel card is what it says, an easel to place your artwork on, therefore I thin you can get even more creative and have a perfect place to showcase it.  In fact an added bonus is that the angle allows you to see glimmer mist and glitter much more asily and dramatically.
The design paper is Graphic 45 A Ladies Diary, I don't think I could have found a more perfect Cd image for this paper!!!  I made the stick pin/hat pin..l"'l
Ok so here's the dets for our challenge;  the image comes from the 
Yesterday's Memories  CD  which you can find here:
