Birthday tea

   I wanted to make a bright, bold coloured card for a young child, so I chose to use the three primary colours - blue, red and yellow - and glitter card.
   I folded the card to make an easel card and attached paper from Papermania that I have had for some time to the front of the card and the base. I used two pieces for the front to allow the card to fold easily.
   The digi stamp from Melgen's Designs was coloured using Promarkers, cut out using a Spellbinders grand scalloped circle die and the upper part dusted with distress ink. This was matted and layered onto glitter silk core'dinations cardstock and core couture core'dinations cardstock, both having been cut out with scalloped circle dies. This was then stuck to the lower front fold of the easel card.
   The easel stop was made by matting and layering glitter silk and core couture core'dinations cardstock onto white card, all cut using Spellbinders scalloped oval dies, and attached to the base using foam pads.
The sentiment was cut from core'dinations cardstock using tattered lace dies.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   Ooh La La Creations - for a child
   Inky Impressions - fold it
   Allsorts - no flowers
   Stamping Sensations - use those dies and/or punchers
