A Quilt and an Easel Card...








I finally got my niece's quilt finished for her for Christmas! A little work but she is certainly worth it! I chose pinks and greens for my colours and then thought I would make her a card to go with it! I decide to make her an "Easel Card". I have seen a few on some blogs and thought it would be fun to try! Of course..everything had to match! I had a really hard time taking some nice photos because of lighting! It was very dreary here and that made it so hard to take a nice picture!
