Joan's Challenge Amazing #16

Good Morning Ladies,
I had a late night last night creating my last card for Joan's Challenge Amazing #16 . I couldn't go to sleep until I created it. I left it as an idea on the table before work yesterday.
You can see and join the challenge here...just click on the link
The requirements this week are as follows:
Make a twisted easel card.
Use any color.
Use some patterned paper.
You must use something that can be purchased at
So here is my card.....
This card started out with the card stock from a Prima 6x6 pad Nature Gaarden. I purchased this pad from Joan's Gardens oh so long ago. I don't know why I never dived into this pad. Only thing I can think of was that I was waiting for that special card. And this easel card challenge was special. The tree trunk stamp and the mushrooms stamp  are from Crafter's Companion. It is a Sheena set called Enchanted Doorway. I believe you can order this stamp set from Terri over at Joan's as she is carrying some of the Crafter's Companion stamp sets. The tree trunk and mushrooms are colorized using Copic markers. Both are hand cut. The mushrooms are popped up to hold the easel back up. Then along came the little bunnies die cuts. They are from Impression Obsession DIE168-C. I purchased these from Terri over at I knew I would use these bunnies for more than Easter. They are so magical that they fit this card perfect. The little girl is part of the patterned paper. The sentiments are from the Stamps of Life.

Happy Scraps,
