Double Twisted Easel

Hello to all of you out there in blogland. Are you all enjoying your Easter break? 
Please be safe if you are going away for the weekend.

In the next 3 weeks, I have a number friends celebrating birthdays, but I cannot
show you the cards I have made for them, as they all read my blog regularly. 
However, I was 'tidying up' my photo files on my computer this morning 
when I found photos of the card I made 2 years ago for a friend. It
was my 1st attempt at a double-twisted easel card. 
Barb loves blue and yellow.

The card is A5 size. The tiny butterfly in the L.H. corner was made using
3 clear peel-off stickers, folded in half and adhered to each other.

I stamped and punched some leaves for the background of this flower.
A small flower image coloured with Promarkers.
