Birthday easel

This card is for our one of our granddaughter's birthday. I've used the sketch for Cardabilities 44 for the standing up part of the card:

I've used elements from a couple of Kanban concept card kits - mixed and matched - and gold mirror card (which makes a photo very difficult - thankfully, I was able to go outside to get a non-flash photo).

This is also for:

Pink gem 35: monochromatic not Xmas + sentiment
Creative card crew: monochromatic
Stamp and create November: easel or centre step card
Glitter fairies 5: easel card
Sugar creek hollow: fancy folds
LiaStampz 8: fancy fold
Little Claire 15: shaped cards
Scrapbook sisters 62: anything goes
Divas by design 16: anything goes
The paper shelter 42: anything goes
Simon says: anything goes

Now I must get on with all the other cards that need to be made today!
