My First Easel Card

Well as you guys all know, I have a hard time getting out of my box when it comes to making cards.  So, here is my first easel card.  And though the card was not hard to make it just didn't turn out quite like I thought it would.  Anyway, I hope everyone is having a great weekend.  I know I am.  This is Crafting Lizzie from Whimsy Doodles.  Isn't she just the cutest.  She has her tape glider and everything.  Ready for a crop nite.
