The Crafty Purple Frog Challenge - Easel Cards or in my case a side easel card!

Morning, brrr very wintery and cold today!! In London we have a covering of snow that is a few inches deep so Lord only knows what it is like out of town xxx I hope you are all warm and stocked up and safe xxx I have my four beautiful babies at home today as there is no school and they are on an authorised absence. I have to take my eldest daughter to a secondary school test so after I have posted this I will be ringing to find out what they are doing.
Okay here is my DT card for the Fabulous The Crafty Purple Frog challenge we have some AMAZING prizes on offer from Crafts and Me and the Crafty Purple Frog so hop over and check them out.
I was watching Create and Craft at the weekend and saw Phil a do crafts demonstrator making an easel card with a difference. It was a side easel card so I thought this would be perfect to make for  this challenge.
I used the beautiful Tulip Pyramage this is also available in decoupage. You will get two cards from one sheet as one is pyramage and one is invertage. Not bad for £2 and you get to reprint as many times as you wish.
As always I printed onto glossy photo paper. I teamed it with some of my own papers from Pascale's PAD called Candy Floral Collection. I used various embellishments from my stash to compliment the colours in the stunning image. The frame is a die from Marianne Designs.
