Not a promarker in sight...!! LOL!

This idea came to me after I saw Di's twisted easel card - why not combine the two shapes together?!?!? I don't have any A3 card to make it a nice easy size, but I do have some A4 card, so I made it slightly smaller than I'd planned, but I think it looks kinda cute - what do you think?
I used my Martha Stewart punch to great effect on the base of the card, some Nesties (kindly supplied by Di, so sorry Di, but you're getting your crafty bits back in another form so I hope you don't mind!). I added some little "Crafty Bits" toppers I bought a while back, added some foam pads to lift them up a bit, a 3d butterfly and a few other bits donated here and there.
The orange acetate butterflies came from Craft Fairy Lisa - thanks for those! I used my trusty CB embossing folder and added some tiny gems on to it (the orange spots you can just see on the base!). They were ordered on the internet and when they arrived they were a LOT LOT LOT smaller than advertised. I've now got a technique to use them which is easier.
It should have arrived by now so it's OK to post it here I hope!

Hi Karen!
Thanks so much honey - this arrived yesterday and it's gorgeous! It's currently sitting right beside me, on top of the printer. The teensy gems are really delicate as you say - the whole thing is just great!! Di x
