My first ever easel card!

Happy Saturday everyone!  I have another summery card for you today and this time I took the plunge and made my first ever easel card...

 

Wow, this was easier than I thought it would be!  I used a DigiStamp Boutique called Zoe who is actually eating chocolate but I edited the image because I wanted to use their freebie handbag (which you can download here).  I hope they don't mind!  Here is proper Zoe in her full choccie glory in a card designed by Lisa Nowacki of Wishcraft!

I'd like to enter my card into Karen's Doodles challenge for happy birthday and the DigiStamp Boutique monthly challenge to use one of their digis.


Paper/cardstock: Bazzill kraft cardstock
Stamps: DigiStamp Boutique Zoe, My Favorite Things sentiment and die set, Hero Arts background stamp
Mediums: Copics, Viva Decor white gloss pen
Accents: American Crafts ribbon, Doodlebug gems
Tools: Nestabilities label die, Fiskars border punch, My Favorite Things flower dies
