Follow the leader!

I obviously wasn't concentrating the other day when I started to make this card. Thinking I'd made a pretty good job of positioning and layering everything up, I was quite happy with the result. That is until I tried to open it! Oops ........ I'd turned my card 90 degrees without realising so that the bottom part was towards the crease. No worries - rescue it by chopping the front off and layering it on another card blank. But the weather's been lovely and the garden called so my card laid abandoned for a few days. Today it hit me - turn it into an easel card! I haven't done one of those for a while so this is how it turned out:












I started with one of the lovely ribbons from QVC which determined the colours. The two papers are from the Daisy pad by K & Co. Green glitter card, flowers and green gems from stash, Core'dinations Whitewash card run through the Cuttlebug with Swiss Dots folder and a cute digi image (which I've forgotten, again, where it came from!)
