Twisted Butterfly

Twisted Butterfly - Hi my crafty friends  I have made a twisted easel for my DT project at One Stop Craft Challenge. Our challenge for this week is SPRING. Isn't that a great challenge. So many ways to interrupt it.

My card is really quite simple. Just an extra score line of the diagonal. My designer paper is one that has been in my stash forever. I have long ago lost the cover with the company logo, so it is a mystery  I really like it, it has glitter in the center of each flower. I think it is very spring-y. I distressed all of the edges with my Zutter distrezz it.

My image is one by our sponsor 2 Cute Ink. This image is Butterfly Garden and colored with Copics. After distressing the edges, I added Stickles to the border.  I thought it would be cute to have it watering my flowers. My flowers are Wilton's flowers for cakes. They were on clearance and I always examine the clearance area for my crafts. I layered them. using glittery brads.

The sentiment is Hot Off the Press and the little decorative image that it is centered in is SU.

Pinspirationa Challenges Photo Inspired - I was inspired by the color and the juicy berry, that I am sure would have been well watered.
