Easel with a twist?

Hello everyone! Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I have finally gotten around to crafting and I am super excited to show you what I have come up with. I actually got this idea from Candy C over at Creativity is Contagious. I am really in love with her take on this easel drawer card. I followed her link to the tutorial, and this is what I put together. I love the vintage,shabby chic look, and really wanted to try my hand at it. I really LOVE the way this came out! I even made the stick pin, so super easy. I went to my local Hobby lobby and Michael's and picked up a couple of new things. The doilie was white and actually from the baking isle at Michael's, I glimmer misted it with Cork. I love the vintage look it gave it. I also put glimmer mist in Pearle, to the flowers. I think I am going to become addicted to Glimmer Mist! The butterfly is a die cut using my Cameo. It is not showing up in the pictures but I heat embossed the solid portion of the die cut with an antique gold and inked it with black soot to give it a metal look. I hope you enjoy this little project as much as I enjoyed creating it. Stay crafty!
