Gold and Dotty !!

Just a quick post today as I am rushing to get this card in a challenge which ends pretty soon.

I have made an easel card on a circle base. The paper I used is from the Prima Botanical collection stuck on a circle card base and then edged with a gold calligrapher pen. The easel part is made from gold, white and lilac pearlescent cards using Marianne Creatables die LR0180 with a LOTV die cut image. I made some flowers from scraps of patterned paper and Marianne Creatable LR0189 die for the leaf stem. Then I finished it with pearls and tiny punched butterflies.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
My Mum's Craft Shop challenge 'All the threes' (3 flowers, 3 pearls, 3 butterflies)
Lili's Little Fairies challenge 'Anything but a square'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Anything Goes with option of non-square base card or project)
The Crafty Pad challenge 'Anything but square'
Allsorts challenge 'Anything but square'
Crafter's Companion challenge 'Gold'
Marianne's Design Divas challenge 'Summer'
Joanna Sheen challenge 'Going Dotty' (the paper is green with tiny white dots)
Dream Valley challenge 'Something old, something new' (old pearls & dies, new paper & die-cut image)
