Easel BD Card

Howdy Crafters - today's Easel card features a great Sizzix thinlits die set by Lori Whitlock - this is the best die set ever! 
I just love this little pocket die cut and the tab piece that goes inside. I can image many possibilities for using this die set - it also comes with other dies - it is so universal! Thanks for stopping by and be blessed ~ gail ~

Brown ribbon run through die cut of recycled cardboard from my stash box so I am not sure of the brand
