Easel Card/Pedestal Card - You're awesome

Hello crafty and non-crafty friends,
Its mid-week and I can't wait until the weekend.  Make sure you stop by.  I'll have a really cute project posted for a blog hop I'll be in.

So, is it a pedestal card or an easel card?  I've seen it called both..  So I decided to make my own name for it.   The first name I thought of "Pedeasalstal" card.  Doesn't really roll off the tongue nicely 2nd name was: "Easelpedes" This one was a little better but didn't sound quite right.  In the end I decided to just call it whatever I was in the mood for at the moment.  So today, I call it an Easel card. Tomorrow I may call it a pedestal card. Enough blah blah blah from me.

I made this card for my lovely friend Zeni.  if you haven't seen her blog yet you MUST go see it.  ScrappyZeni <---------click on the link

We met (not personally, yet) through very strange circumstances which I can't really go into detail right now but we've really hit it off.  She's currently on 3 design teams, works full-time, and is completely devoted to her daughters and their cheerleading traveling team.  She's quite busy and somehow manages to squeeze in her crafting.  To show my support I whipped up this little card for her.

It's my first Pedestal card (see, depends on my mood)  I used the Forever Young cartridge and the patterned paper is from the DCWV Blossoms and Butterflies paper stack.  I stickled around some of the flowers and used my white jelly roll pen to add some interest around the letters and the card.  Also put little dots around the scallop circle.  The sentiment if from one of the My Pink Stamper collections.

If you need instructions on how to make this card you can contact me and I'd be happy to help.
