Twisted Easel Card

Just a short one tonight as I am running out of time. We are going to the Tutankhamen Exhibition in Manchester, and staying for a couple of nights, so if I don't do this now, I will miss the Penny Black Challenge, as I do most weeks!

I have seen the Twisted Easel card on a couple of blogs this last week, so thought I would give it a go, it may look complicated, but its really easy.
This card is for this weeks Penny Black Challenge - Pink, and I have used a 'Gift of Flowers' image, coloured with mostly pink Promarkers! The sentiment is also PB, I have used 3D pads and curled the sentiment slightly. The papers are Papermania Blueberry Hill.
I have followed the sketch on Sketch Saturday. I wasn't too sure how well it would 'stand up' so I thought buttons might be a good idea, and after sticking them down, thought about the flower! So to tie it all in, I demolished a cherry blossom and added another button to the centre.

I am entering this card in the following challenges
Penny Black - Pink
Sketch Saturday - Sketch
Penny Black at Allsorts - Say it with Flowers
Craft Your Passion - Use pink

Thanks for looking,

Avril x

You made a great job of the twisted easel card Avril. You have used one of my favourite images (one of many actually) and you have coloured her beautifully. The Blueberry hill papers work so well together too. A perfect card for our challenge this month at Penny Black at Allsorts.
Thank you for sharing your lovely card with us and we hope you will join us next month.
Good luck in the challenge draw.

It's a gorgeous card Avril! And it sure looks very complicated, maybe I should try one too. Your colouring is very beautiful, I love the layout and all the details.

Beautiful card Avril! Up until his morning I'd never seen a twisted easel card before and now yours is the second one I've seen - gorgeous! I can't work out how you've done it 'tho! By the way, when you get time please email me your address as you won the papers I had as candy. xxx
