Sudsy Suzi on an Easel

I think this is my favorite of the 4 birthday cards I've made for Phindy's Challenge this week. Maybe this one should go to DSIL - hmmmmmm - got to think about that. Sudsy Suzi is a Phindy image that I colored with Copic markers. DSIL and DB had a yellow claw foot bathtub in a house they rented early in their marriage. The DP is from K&Co. It reminded me of bathroom tiles so it is purrfect for this image. The bubbles, the wine and even the kitty seemed a bit decadent thus the sentiment "Indulge". I used Cricut cartridges: Plantin Schoolbook and Beyond Birthdays.
I changed the dimensions slightly on this easel card. Usually I make them 4 inches square. This one is 5 in by 4 in to allow for the bathtub. I wanted a little bit of card beyond the image on either side. I think I like the rectangular card better than the square. What do you think?

Mary, when I saw this card over at Phindy's bathroom tiles is immediately what I thought of so glad we were thinking alike. Definitely a DSIL card if she owned a yellow claw footed tub. Decided I'd come tell you what a wonderful card this is on your blog. I love it.
