Easel with Izzy

Hello everyone (again)! My first post for Sunshine and Giggles is found below. Janice is having a DT call and debuting a new site so be sure to check it out!

I keep making these cards for challenges and not getting them in on time, so I decided to do a double post before I forget.



This is my first easel card, and I promise to contain myself and not do these everyday. haha! I just loved it! It's so fun to make, what a great way to showcase a card on itself.
Here are the challenges I used with this adorable new image named Izzy (Twinkle Tots line) by The Greeting Farm:

Anya Ink : color challenge {blue and orange}
Anyone For Anya?: recipe challenge {3 papers, 2 buttons, 1 bow}
Crazy 4 Challenges: Easel card
Card Patterns: Sketch challenge

A closer peek (just because I finally stopped being lazy and embossed the image first):



I received some new N copics in the mail as an early HB present! I was so happy to color Izzy up with them.
Thank you for popping in to see me! Have a wonderful rest of your day my friends.
*Love and Aloha*

This is adorable Joni! Love the little image and the colors you used.

This is wonderful! Where can I get a tutorial on how to make an easel card? On SCS somewhere I am sure, but finding things there can be difficult. Could you direct me to a link? I love your card. The embossing is such a good idea. I have this adorable little tot on her way to me right now. Can't wait to get her!
