A Teddy Bear's Picnic Easel Card (Pink Gem Designs image)

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all well and enjoying some sunshine.

I can't wait to show you all my new cards, I have 5 today! 

This first card I created as an easel card and kept it quite simple. I carefully cut the chevron paper, inked it and then layered it on top of scraps to give the bottom layer some added dimension. I love using scraps rather than foam tape when it is a larger area as it's good for the environment and cheap hehe! When I say scraps I mean the packaging of embellishments that is quite a sturdy paper so only requires a couple of layers.

The cute little image is from Pink Gem Designs and the Scrabble sentiment is from Ditzie Designs. The pearls are from Flourish with a Bling.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
