Twisted Single Easel.

It is the second week of the latest Butterfly Challenge and here is another Easel card for your inpsiration.  This time it is a single twisted one. The Measurements are for a finished card size of 5" square.
Cut card stock to 10"x 5". Score and fold at 5" along the length to make a square card base. Score on the diagonal by placing fold to top and opening to the bottom. Score from 'top right' down to 'bottom left'.  Decorate as desired.

Here I have used dark blue card stock for the base card and cream pearlised for the 5" x 5" sq topper which I have put through a Creative Expressions Embossing folder called Bark.  The flower is from a freeebie sheet of flower motifs that I have had in my stash for ages. the sentiment is a silver sticker also from my stash.  The  image is by a company no longer in existence but I do have a few sheets of images before they did. The company is Nicecrane Designs and this image is from their Water Babies sheet vol 1. I backed onto stiff card and stitched around the edge for some extra detailing.

Entering into the following challenges:
Artistic Inspirations # Anything goes.
Use Your Stuff #356 Yarn/string/twine.
Through The Craft Room Door # Anything goes.
A Bit More Time To Craft #90 Anything goes.
