First Twisted Easel Card!

Well, I've seen everyone else having a go at these twisted easel cards, so I thought I'd give it a go - after a bit of puzzling over which way up to stick the image, I finally worked it out!
This is a card for someone who I won't name as it will spoil the surprise, but it is a thank you for something!! I thought I'd go for a bright, flowery theme as it's Spring, even though it's really miserable and gloomy outside!



Supplies:
Images: Miss Anya with Flowers from The Greeting Farm, coloured with Promarkers, "Thank You" from Raindrop Echo Designs
Paper: My Mind's Eye - Summer
Tools: Nestabilities Blossom die
Embellishments: Flowers & brads

Challenges:
Sir Stampalot March - Spring is in the air
Creative Craft Challenge - Thank You
Top Tip Tuesday #24 - Favourites - I think easel cards are my fave style, and I love my nesties!
Inky Impressions - Easel card
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Challenge - Easel card

Hello lovely
Thank you for commenting on my blog - and what a lovely surprise to see that you are blogging too! I love card-making but am nowhere near as impresive as you. This design in particular caught my eye and your whole blog has motivated me to keep going! I hope you are recovering well after all the hospital visits - and that your mum is too! So glad that we are starting to get back in touch a bit more. Love again to you, your mum and dad. Hugs, Gin xx
