Sisterhood of Crafters - Easel Cards

 Hello my friends!

Today I have a card for the new challenge over on The Sisterhood of Crafters!

Our theme, chosen by Debbie this time around, is:

I decided to use this opportunity to create something a little 'special' for my girlfriends birthday card.  (She loved it BTW!)  She is a tea-toter and loves the color purple ... enough said!  LOL
Here are a few other photos of today's card:

 The dies I have used are:
Spellbinder Decaled Rectangles (inside sentiment panel)
Penny Black Celebrations (51-028) - Front Happy Birthday Sentiment
Frantic Stamper - Tea Set (FRA-DIE09338)

The Paper Boutique 'Lavender Fields' Coloured Card Collection was used for my base card and the coordinating 6x6 Decorative Papers were used for my design.
