Friends and Easels

It's a happy Monday and a holiday here in the U.S.  It's Martin Luther King Jr. Day and that means there is no school for me.  The Friends of Speedy TV challenge for today is to make an easel card, of any variety.  My easel card features the Mark's Finest Papers set called Oh Beans.  I masked off the bottom cup and then stamped them on pattern paper.  I colored my cups and added some rhinestones to a couple of the cups.  I followed suit with the beans on the card base that helps the easel stand!  I find that a border punch adds just the right amount of pop and helps the card stand up better.
Don't forget that for every Mark's Finest Paper challenge, a stamp set is offered.  Today's stamp set that is up for grabs is the Snowball Mini stamp set. 
Thanks for stopping by!
