ATS Wednesday Challenge - Easel Cards

Well, hello! Since it is Wednesday, there is a new challenge at the All That Scraps Challenge blog! This weeks challenge is to make an Easel card. Can you believe I have never made one!? And with This Tutorial at Splitcoaststampers it was really easy! I made one of the optional larger sizes listed towards the end of the tutorial. I also used my first Kraftin Kimmie stamp! I have been seeing some really great cards made with these little cuties, and I just had to play with some myself!

The Details:
Stamp: Kraftin Kimmie's Francesca (available at All That Scraps), sentiment - Suzi Suprise (The Greeting Farm)
Paper: Basic Grey, Blush Red Medium, Suede Brown Dark (both Prism), White (Paper Trey Ink)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Copics:
Skin:R00,E00,E11,R20
Hair:E02,E08,E09,E18
Clothes: Y06,Y15,Y08,BV000, R22,R24,R27, C0,C1,C3
Cupcakes: BG10,BG13,YG23,YG17,R20,Y06,Y08,E44,E47
Misc: Brads (Basic Grey), Ribbon (?), Stardust Stickles, Corner Rounder (SU)

I'd love it if you decided to play along in the challenge this week. Don't forget, All That Scraps gives a prize each week to the winner of hte challenge. You just need to make sure that the card you enter uses stamps sold at All That Scraps. That is really easy to do because they carry LOTS of stamps!

I hope your day is wonderful!
