Easel Does It!

Thank You for all the fabulous cards last week using all manner of die-cuts for Keryn's "Die Cut Crazy" dare. We loved visiting your blogs to see your creations.
Of course, if you made a card and shared it with us according to the rules we published last week, you'll now be eager to hear the result of the draw for the Sizzlits die that Keryn offered as a prize.....
Well, the winner's name has been drawn from Keryn's "virtual hat" and is:
ANDREA GOURLEY.
Andrea please contact Keryn to arrange to have your sizzlits die sent to you.

Anyway, getting back to this week, it's Paula here with the new Dare and I've called it
Easel Does it
This weeks challenge is to make an easel card. There's a big clue in the title, huh?
They are so very popular at the moment but I'm hoping at least some of you will be up for my extra "sting in the tail" to this Dare - I don't want it to be too easy, you know....what I'd really love is to see what type of shape (other than a square) you can come up with using the basic Easel card idea.

So you can go for the easy option and make the simple version of the easel card, or if you're brave enough,go for the shaped option.
Do you dare?

This is the last of the April dares so we have to say "farewell" to our lovely April Guest Designer Sally today -we hope you've enjoyed seeing her fabulous cards on here as much as we have - she's promised to keep joining in with the challenges whenever she can, so we won't be losing her completely, phew! Thanks Sally - we've loved having you on the team.

We're looking forward to seeing all your easel cards so please come back and leave a link so we can come and visit.
Here's how the Design Team rose to the challenge this week:
