My 1st Ever Easel Card!!! (about time lol)


Well I have finally made my 1st EVER easel card lol and it's also only my 2nd time make a shaped card!! :O
As I sell or post all my cards it has never been practical to make shaped or easel cards but I thought it was about time I gave it a try to at least see if I was able to make one lol I have to say for my first attempt, I am pretty proud of it :)
I used X-cut scalloped circle dies to make the base and all of the layers. My image is a stamp that Ive never inked before today from The Greetings Farm (not sure of her name sorry) My papers are from Dovecraft Back to Basics and DCWV. I used a tiny MFT die to make the butterflys. The lace,pearls,music peel offs,sentiment and gems are all from my stash. And finally I added lots of stickles to her hair and for the butterfly trails.

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
