There is a new challenge up at BBC and here is what I have made.  I made an easel card for the very first time.  I love love love my Gorjuss Girl stamps so I decided to color her up with my copics.  This is only the third or forth image I have used copics to color so I have lots to learn, but I adore how the work!!

I colored her up and fussy cut her out.  The white frame is a silhouette file I cut to size. I layered some lace behind the frame and put some very small flowers to fancy it up...

This shows the inside and sentiment area.  I used a row of flatback pearls as my stopper for the card front.

Again, thanks for looking!!
Have a great week, Karen!!
