Lots of first

For the Digi Darla blog hop it's here.

Ok so for everyone that knows my work... I've never done a easel card... well after seeing so many WONDERFUL creations from everyone, I just had to try my hand at doing one.  And I've never used digi paper either!  And today I was looking over at Doodle pantry blog and they had a wonderful set of digis available for us to use in their challenges.  

So if you know me, you know that I looooove to craft.  So I had to try my hand doing a card with it lol
I used the wonderful paper from Doodle pantry and combined it with BBP Bazzill Basics Paper the red and the green.  I put my PNG image on top of one of the papers and just had to use my spellbinder circle to cut it out.  I used the scallop circle for the red underneath.  I also added some Robin's Nest dew drops in silver (addicted to this stuff).

I colored my wonderful digi with my copics:
Isn't  he just soooo cute!  Don't forget to go and get him at Doodle pantry blog.

Here's a look from the side of my card:
Everybody was right... I was soooo sure that it was really hard to make and it really wasn't  that bad.  This was my 1st try.  Pretty good I think.  The cardstock is paper from my scrapbook album, it's the white paper inside the sideloading pockets!  I don't  like to throw stuff away and had lots of this stuff.  Been using a lot of it with my 6x6 cards.

I followed this amazing sketch (really love to have a sketch to work with):

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Doodle pantry blog - the Tiny Triceratops and the paper
  2. Sketch and stash challenge - sketch
  3. Paper make up stamps - Easel card with a digi
  4. Cutie pie challenge - one for the boys (2nd entry)
  5. Hiding in my craftroom - anything goes
So that's it!  I was really really happy with my 1st try.  And as you would know it... I was addicted... so did 6 total today lol!  I'm coming back with 2 other ones.  The rest is my DT work for when I will be on vacation!

I noticed that I have a new follower!  Big hello to Jovan!  I really love seeing new faces ;)))

Don't  forget to leave me a comment on your way out.
