Butterfly Twisted Easel

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

For today's card I've used a number of butterfly die cuts that were cut months ago, before my mojo disappeared and I've teamed them with a newer favorite.

And here it is open, where you can see I added the topper directly to the easel without backing it...

The noble square die makes it relatively easy to create the twisted base, and I've used the central square for the stopper.

Card: SU's thick whisper white and smoky slate
Tools and embellishments: Creative Expressions Butterfly Circle dies, Sue Wilson's Noble Ornate Pierced Squares (the stopper is the central die), and rhinestones from my stash

#86 A is for Any Shape at Mrs. A.'s Butterfly Challenge (another I've not joined for way too long
#187 AG at Artistic Inspirations
#138 AG at Creative Fingers

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.

The smoky slate card stock makes for a great Quartz element. I love your ornate easel card . It does give a rather elegant look and delicate appearance. Nice to see you back in the butterfly garden again. Hugs Mrs A.
