Large easel card

I was commissioned to make a special 8 x 8 card featuring quite a few requests - to include a hat, art deco, volunteer, choir, Doc Martins and cakes .... this is the result. The background paper for the upright part of the easel is from Marilyn Robertson's Kimono 8 x 8 paper pad - it's glittered and looks much better irl than it can be seen here. I managed to get some free clipart for the volunteer aspect of the request and one of a choir. The hat was also a clipart, printed and fussy cut.

The art deco pieces were from Hunkydory. The paper on the base is from Dovecrafts' Iss & makeup 8 x 8 paper pack I cut out the Doc Martins and mounted on to 3D foam to act as the stopper. The cupcakes were from Kanban (long ago) and all flowers, including the crocheted ones were from stash.

I know this looks strange, but I took it to try and show the foiling:

This is for:
Time out 182: birthday or any celebration
Krafty chicks 548: any occasion
Alphabet: X for X-tra folds
Mix it up 46: anything goes + fancy fold
Allsorts 612: anything goes + add a number
Unicorn 62: use flowers
Simon says Wednesday: anything goes
Cardz TV 135: anything goes
