Think Pink...

I was challenged while talking to a friend last night to join the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog for their "Think Pink" challenge. The challenge is to honor one of their own DT members, Jacque, who has fought a valliant battle against breast cancer! So I accepted the challenge and got busy, coloring my image while my friend and I visited via Skype! That is so cool to be able to see the person in real time while you visit (waving to you Paola!)

I had also visited Norma Lee's blog to follow her tutorial on how to make an Easel card with a swing away panel. Her's are absolutely gorgeous and thanks Norma for posting the tutorial on your blog.

So here's what I came up with...

As you can see I had a bit of a tough time getting my card to stay tightly closed. Believe me, the edges all match up exactly! Here is the card propped open, and it looks just like a regular Easel card...

The next two pictures who you how the bottom panel swivels open to show another panel underneath.

Here is my card recipe:

  8. Hi Barb. I'm playing catch up here with my comments. Sorry you can't get your card to close tightly--don't know what happen here. Try another? Practice makes perfect...LOL. Your card is gorgeous just the same. Love this cute image--I still haven't played with mine yet. Awesome colouring as always.
    It's so cool that you've been visiting Paola via Skype. My sister's been urging me to try, but with my computer illiteracy I'm sure I'll goof it up somehow.
