Sunny square scallop easel

Hellllllllooo again. I have another easel card to show you today – this time a square scallop version I made for my lovely friend & SU team member Leesa.
Inspiration for the layout came from the fab Keesh's Inkspirations Challenge 55 sketch, as it was perfect for the scallop square I had in mind. I couldn't post it here while the challenge was live though, as I hadn't given the card to Leesa yet. Anyhoo, here's Keesh's sketch:
& here you can see the front in more detail:
The scallop square I used for the easel is the new clear die from the Summer Mini. For the front, I punched 1¼ inch squares from Sunny Garden DSP to make a patchwork base, then, added a punched birthday greeting from the 'Punch Bunch' free SAB set (loving this stamp – it's getting a real work-out) & a cute little owlie & cage from 'Aviary'. For the base, I fussy cut some more Sunny garden DSP & added a greeting from the beautiful 'Heard from the Heart' set. Some little pearls just finish it off (I'm obsessed with these at the moment).
Anyway, no time to stay & chat. We'll have no kitchen from tomorrow & I still have lots of little things to finish before then. Hope you have a lovely weekend when it comes. If you have any questions, just drop me a line.
Inky wishes, Di

Just a fab idea. Love the papers and the stamp set you chose. Just beautiful. Love the patchwork effect. It is such a beautiful card. Those easels are very addictive I must say.
