Club Anya & Friends - Monday Mania Easel Card Challenge

Greetings Folks!
Ha - I always wanted to say that!
Yes yes, I'm a strange one for sure!  LOL

Okay, seriously though, I thought I would post
the card that I created for this weeks
Monday Mania challenge over on the
Club Anya & Friends blog.

Suzi has challenged us to create an easel card, AND
to add ribbon to it!  So I did exactly that.... but
I added a lot more little things, making the couple
on this card really adorable.

I posted this card in TGF's Gallery as per the challenge rules.
But I only uploaded the main image there,
so I thought I would show you the inside as well.
So without any more stalling,
Here is the adorable couple!
and now, the inside....

I really had a lot of fun playing with different ideas
for this card.  I wanted the layout to be just a tad
bit different and unique in it's own way.
I think I succeeded in that aspect.
I have to say I am quite pleased with the end result.

On the card front I used the "Anya Valentine" Digi
that I got ages ago.  The heart they are holding, is actually
double layer, because I cut it out, and put it through
an embossing folder, to add some texture to it.
I then hand drew the heart at the top of the card,
and cut that out, and paper pierced it.  I'm sorry those
details are hard to see in this photo, which is why
I thought I would tell you that they are there. LOL

I then added some punched flowers topped
with little silk rosebuds.

The flower on the inside is from the "Me Time Anya" set
and I thought it was the perfect thing to add to
the inside of this card.

I just love the idea of the entire sentiment not being
seen from the outside view, but just the words
"I Love You" is seen from the Easel view.
THEN when opening it, you can read the entire sentiment.
I couldn't have had a better sizzix die for the flourishes
Don't they look almost like a heart?

Oh I just love the end result.
So there you have it
My Monday Mania Easel Card!
