Easel with Green

It's time for another Paper A La Mode challenge at the Outlawz. Our sponsor this week is Fitztown with a theme of 
Easel card w/twist Green
I have a confession to make. I don't normally like making easel cards. It's not because I don't like the easels themselves, it's because I often wonder if the recipient will know how to put it together! But I'm always up to the challenge of flexing my creative muscle and this challenge was no different.

I started out by coloring Cameo 11 with Copic markers and cutting and embossing the image with a Spellbinders Nestabilities oval die. The design paper is from the DCWV Magnolia Way stack. I added a Dienamites "Cattails" die along with the Elizabeth craft designs "Thinking Of You Stand Up Helper" die. I also used a Martha Stewart butterfly punch and green foil paper and bling for added dimension. Finally I added the swirl bling, which I colored with a Copic marker, to give the printed butterfly "movement!"
