Circle Easel Belated card

Good morning, friends!
This is the first shape easel card I've ever made even though I've admired the ones other paper crafters have made for awhile now. It was fun and easy! I used #412 HUGO THE SNAIL available right now at Magnolia-licious! He's one of the adorable stamps in the Sweet Rainbow collection. He was awesome to color! Iused Purely Pomegranate and Certainly Celery as my guiding colors. His shell went a little more towards 'grape' than I intended.

I only stamped and colored one image, but I cut part of his shell to raise it on dimensionals and then glued the rest of him to the card base.

This is one of my favorite sentiments to use with snails (or turtles). It is an oldie from All that Scraps and it cracks me up every time I read it.

Well, I guess that's it for this terrific Tuesday! Hope yours is all you wish for!

Cheryl
