Round Easel Card

I got an honourable mention at the Shabby Tea Room for my last card. Thanks ladies. Hope this qualifies for the latest challenge.

Marianne's Design Divas Challenge is a round card or use circles so I decided to use MD die LR0112 circle die to make an easel card using pale pink card. I then cut a doily in cream using MD die LR0130. I cut swirls in pink from LR0116 and LR0248 Tiny's flower.

The sentiment was framed with the small Passe Partout rectangle CR1242. For the centre I used some decoupage of a tortoiseshell butterfly on bramble, something I don't often  do but happened to have in my stash. I laced some organza Ribbon round the side and added a cluster of flowers with a small heart charm.

  2. Pretty in pink. I love your round easel card shape. I make easel cards but never think to use a shape on them. Great use of the decoupage butterfly too. Thankyou for fluttering by #35. Hugs Mrs A.
