Easel Shaped Card - Fabulous

If a new day has come, why not to create a new card!?

How are you today, my dear visitors? I hope each and every one of you is full of energy and inspiration, like me :)

In the two challenge blogs I'm following, there are different challenge themes, which I decided to combine together in the card I'm gonna share with you today.

1. Dream Valley Challenge Blog theme for the contest is "No Squares Allowed"
2. Forever Friends Challenge Blog wanted to see creation in "Pastel Colors"

Here is my shaped easel card:


Recently I've got myself a new set of QuickKutz Nesting Labels 10 Dies and it was my first time using them. What can I say...? Although the size of the largest die is about 6" (and it's a pretty regular size for the cards I usually make), it was a bit difficult to embellish, I felt like I don't have enough space.
But after all, I'm very pleased with the result, the card is cute and compact :)



The image I chose is by Mo's Digital Pencil - "Fabulous". 

I've colored it with the following Copic colors:
Skin: E0000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Skirt: BG000, BG01, BG05, BG09
Hair: Y21, YR23, E33, E35
Shirt: BV000, BV00, BV02, BV08
Shoes: T6, T4, T1
Stockings: R81, R85, R59

To pop up the glasses, I covered their inside area with Glossy Accents:
