come and get it challenges
the poodles parlour/winged-things
Oh my!!!I wish you could see the true colors of this soft and pretty but MY CAMERA...NOT the photographer....screwed up!!!
The flowers are a soft ivory and muted brown and so 
is the beautiful paper from DCWV.The design is a twisted easel card 
held up by the 3 D flower. I used vellum to emboss the Happy Anniversary sentiment and as well embellish the pretty butterflies cut from the Wall Decor & More Cricut cartridge @ 2". I multi layered them with pop dots, a bit of glitter (Stickles of course) and then glued them to the card and bow on the matching box. The box was easy! I  used Martha Stewart's scoring board and just cut one to fit the 6" card. Since the card has so much depth to it,
an envelope just would not work.
Created this flower to hold easel card upright.

The background paper is not purple it's brownish...UGH for the camera!!
This is the box I created to fit the card into.


  1. Now this is breath taking. I love easel cards. Love how you used the flower the easel part. All the glitter and ribbons, you out did yourself.
