First Easel Card I Have Made

Front of Card
Easel Card on left  and Inside with verse on right
Been exploring several challenge blogs...so many to choose and all are so much fun. Tried to make this card to enter several:
City Crafter Challenge: Their challenge is an Easel Card! You can use any theme or color you want as long as it is an easel card! Since I have never done one, I wanted to try after seeing my friend Betty's ( click on her name to see) easel cards....she seems to be addicted. 
Just Cute Bears:  Challenge is to see creations using buttons and bows from your stash. And I have plenty of those. And I love teddy bears!
Crafty Sentiments:  The challenge is to use buttons!
Delightful Sketches: Pull out your Punches and create anything using any type of punch on your creation.

About my card: Colored image with Pencils and OMS
Stamp: SU Bears and Verse from Year 2000 ( found at SU Garage sale just this weekend)
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa,  SU Cameo Coral
Paper: GKD PL Creme de Menthe, Peach from Stash, DCWV Plaid from Spring Stack, GP White
Punch: Fiskars Scallop
Spellbinders: Labels 9
Ribbon: SU Green -tied with Bow Easy
Buttons from Stash
I spent more time linking up to all these challenges than I spent making this card!  But it was fun!  I think I may stick to just one challenge at a time.
Hope you may see a challenge blog here to check out for your next project!
Thanks for coming for a visit.
