Another Double Twisted Easel

Last week I showed you a double twisted easel card I had made for a friend
 2 years ago. It was my first attempt at a D.T.E. card, and although they are so
easy to make, I have not made another once since...that is until a few days
 ago. I have been very busy, and incredibly tired lately, so I made another 
D.T.E. card, CASING the same design. In some ways I felt
 as if I was lazy, but with time at a premium, and my mojo 'on 
another planet, I was able to produce this card very quickly.

I have always loved pink and brown together. I apologise for the poor lighting
quality of the photos, but they were taken in the very last rays of daylight.

A view of my card from above.

A closer look at the tiny hand-made flower. I used Stickles Platinum
on the edges of this (and the larger) flower, but instead of sparkling,
it loooks dull and even dirty in the photos.
