Easel Cards.

A new challenge has started over at the Butterfly Blog.
#121 Spin The Butterfly Wheel with E for Easel card. 
Here are my inspiration cards for you.

First card is for a basic Easel design. You will find full  instructions for making all of the cards under the card shape tab at the top of the Butterfly blog underneath the banner heading.
 I used Easel Card/Emerald Green/Eminence/Edges/Butterfly.
The stamp is by Craft UK 'Flower collection'.I embossed with white embossing powder and then coloured in using my promarkers. Once coloured I die cut using Spellbinders 'Romantic Rectangle'
The sentiment came in the same stamp set.  The edge of butterflies is also embossed with white powder and coloured with my promarker.
 My camera always has a problem with purple. It comes out looking blue but IRL it is purple.
Entering the above card into the following challenges:
Through the Craft Room Door # Anything goes.

Get Creative #79 Anything goes/no twist.
Patties Creations #157 Flowers.

My second  card is for a Double Easel design. 
 I used Easel Card//Eminence/Edges/Butterfly.
The digi stamp is by Delicious Doodles 'Butterfly Border.  I downloaded several prints and coloured and fussy cut flowers and butterflies for extra embellishment. I used promarkers and a silver gel pen.  The sentiment is die cut twice and is by Presscut PCD02 Happy Birthday #1. Gems were from my stash.

Final card is a Double Twisted Easel.

Hello Anne, It's so nice to see you at my blog! Thank you for your nice comments. It was great to see you at Farnborough too! Although Julie and I were both sad that we didn't find you again.
