Birthday Card for DD Sophie and Whiff of Joy Challenge

Hello everyone! I wanted to share this easel card I made for my DD Sophie's birthday tomorrow (6 years old!) I used the castle from the 1001 Nights set. I also discovered a tutorial on the Whiff of Joy Inspiration blog for the flowers. I thought they looked very Eastern done this way. I used some papers that I bought when Greta and I went to Little Rock awhile back. I do like how bright they are, but they are pretty loud in real life. :-) But that goes just right with Sophie's personality, so it's all good, right?!

I also used some new flourish dies from Quickutz and some Spellbinders dies, both of which I found on my last expedition to Hobby Lobby. :-)

I'd like to enter my card in this week's Whiff of Joy Challenge.

Here are a couple of close ups ( I always like when bloggers take close up photos of their work, so I thought I'd give it a try--not sure there's all that much to see, though!)

And of those adorable flowers

And here's the inside

Challenges Entered:

I made a tutorial of how I made my easel cards. You can view it at the link below.

I hope everyone is having a great week! Thanks for looking and happy stampin'! Lisa :-)
