Charisma Cardz - Easel card

We have a new challenge at Charisma Cardz and this week I have chosen Easel Cards as these are my absolute favourite style of cards (well until something new grabs me!!).
I thought I would try a card without an image for this card, I recently bought a pack of 4 butterfly embellishments from Poundland, they are made of feathers and have lots of glitter making them sparkle (I now wish I'd bought more), I have used 1 of these as my focal point and I love it!! here is another view to show the easel style
We have 2 fabby sponsors :
THE CUTTING CAFE - who have donated 3 digi sets of the winners choice.
DONNA'S DEN - who have donated a lovely Greeting Farm stamp -Bree.
We have Amy and Tina with us as our guest designers, so please drop by the blog and take a look at their cards along with the rest of the girls, they've certainly done a fab job!
It's also lovely to see entries on the blog already, you girls are quick!!
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges :
Pollycraft - picture inspirations - colours = lime/pink/turquoise
Lili of the Valley - four seasons - I've gone for spring/summer with the butterfly!
Well have a fab day whatever you have planned. I'm baking for my cousins little boy lol, bless him he loves my coffee sponge and won't eat shop bought ones because they aren't as nice!!!!

Hi Joanne, your card is stunning!and love the butterfly as the focal point, I rarely use coloured images.
