An Oval Easel Card

I just love the Easel cards, so today I decided to try my hand at a Round Easel card, ok it's oval. I used a Childs Year, welded two scalloped ovals together and made the height 10" so it would make a 5" card. I scored one side at 2 1/2". Cut another oval at 5", one at 4.75 and another at 4.5 to give me my top layer. I cut the adorable lamb from Create a Critter (Looks like the one on Sugar & Spice Cart.) Instead of using the face it cuts I used a PKS critter face, Just love these stamps. I also did not use the bows it cuts, I made mine with purple ribbon. I stamped the outside with a Papertrey Ink Stamp-Feel Better. I have not decide my inside sentiment yet, I may just write a sweet note. I made an embellishment for the inside to hold my card up when I open it, so there it is my oval easel card.



Will be entering this into the following challenges:
Getting Cricky---Simply Sunday
Scrappy Moms--Terrific Tuesday
Ok, they all have links to the challenges, so jump on in and have some fun with them.
Hope everyone has a fabulously fun weekend!!
Cindy
