Easel card to the rescue!

This is the second time I've not concentrated properly and made a card with everything facing the spine! Not to worry, it gives me the perfect reason to cut the front off and change it into an easel card.



This is the adorable Too Sweet Kitty from Meljen Designs which I've coloured with Promarkers and matted onto a pink scalloped circle cut with my Nesties. The 6" x 6" card blank has been covered with a pale pink paper with tiny white flowers from the Spring Dayz kit from Monti's Pixel Playground. The flowery paper is from Zoe Pearn and the striped paper from Monti's Pixel Playground. All of the papers I printed on my computer. I've used Martha Stewart's scallop dot edge punch. The spotty ribbon is from QVC. The green flower is a Prima one, the purple flower and spotty button are Papermania Capsule Collection. Card Candy from Craftwork Cards coloured with Promarkers.

I'd like to enter this card into the following:
Creative Craft World Challenge #5 - Easel cards
Pile it on Challenge #18 - Cute and Cuddly
Totally Gorjuss Challenge #29 - Pink and Green
Crafty Ann Challenge #14 - Anything Goes
