Meadows Sunset

This is my very first ever "Easel Card" using the new McMahon Vintage, "Meadows Sunset " image. Surprisingly, they are not as difficult to make as I imagined they might be. Sometimes I'll take forever to try a new fold because I'm afraid it will take longer to figure out and it seems like my time is always taken up with daily needs either at home or work. Ahh well... I finally got to try it out and I really liked making it. I used Prima Fairy Flora Dp, Prima Fairy Flora Pebbles, Prima Roses and Prima Vintage Lace. Oh... and more STICKLES. :)
