Shaped easel card

This is my card for the following challenges :

I felt the need to get all inky today so I've played with my Distress inks for most of the colours I've used to make the background are - Spiced Marigold, Mustard Seed, Barn Door and Broken China. I've used a mix of stamps including Elusive Images, Rubbadubbado, Clarity and Stampin' Up. I also got the bleach out and stamped with it and used it to highlight certain areas. I've used Labels 8 Nestabilities to make the shape.

I made the bottom panel with the same inks and double stamped the swirl and added some eyelets.

Well I hope everyone is enjoying the Bank Holiday week end, it's nice to think I don't need to iron clothes and make sandwiches for tomorrow !

Thanks for looking
