My first easel card

Hi all this was my recent demo swap I made to swap with other team members I used the funky set Good Neighbors - yep American spelling but we'll let them off as so cute and so many stamps - TEN of them and it's free in Sale-a-bration.

The style of this stamp set really reminds me of  Trendy Trees & the Funky Forest wheel. I wanted something bright & colourful & I wanted to make an easel card & they were so easy but don't tell my team mates that - hopefully they think I'm really clever so here it is in cheerfulness.

Stamp sets: Good Neighbors, Bella's Bloom, Funky Forest (wheel)
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Only Orange, Green Galore, Gable Green, Baja Breeze
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Only Orange, Green Galore,Kaleidoscope DSP
Punches: Scallop oval, large oval, scallop border
Other: Dimensionals, stamp-a-ma-jig

The side view:

And folded flat for posting:

The only other demo with impeccable taste (so 2/14 of us) who chose to pre-order this set was Bron Heslop - her card is also a happy card teamed up with Washington Apple DSP - love how she's stamped on the DSP for her clouds plus she's cut out a few houses & popped them up on dimensionals - seriously cute in real life!
