It's been a while since I crafted. So decided to head up to the craft room and make a card - an easel card. I had printed this image out a while back and thought I would color it. I love the challenges at scrapbitzcopics and thought that this image would be ideal for the Touch of Red challenge!. This is from saturated canary - Hollywood .
I thought the antique car from silhouette store would make the perfect background. I colored the lady with copic and added spica to give a subtle glitter

The tags are mini tags from paper trey ink (both the die and the stamp). The main label is spellbinder I think label 4 and just rite shabby chic stamp. I stamped an arrow and follow your dreams sentiment from paper trey ink on to it. The rose is colored with memento ink.
Rhinestone ribbon, Feathers and a bauble (got from cutting of the ring portion of some party fillers) and acrylic flowers and rhinestones provide the added bling. I got some gauze - not the regular kind from drug store but the cotton kind from http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002Q0A6JM/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00 . These are beautiful and provide nice texture. I added glimmer mist to one piece and left the other alone.
One main thing to remember when doing an easel card is since you fold the card over  make sure you cut another piece the same dimension as the front of the card if you are planning to layer .
In this case I cut up a  a 12 x 12 paper to 6 x 12. So the card is 6 x 6. The front is scored at 3 to fold over. So I cut another piece 6 x 6 and layered on that. The pattern paper are from recollection elegant stack. (3 pieces - (1.75 x 5.75 - 2 different pattern pieces and another patter piece cut at 3.75x3.75 inches). I broke out my sewing machine to stitch the paper in using zig zag stitch

The inside of the card

I love how the card turned out. Thank you all for reading.
Happy Crafting!
