Besties Half Easel Love Card

Good Afternoon Everyone,
I have made this Besties half easel card and for a change I didn't add any flowers to the main image section, placing them below instead.
I am loving these half easel cards at the moment and this is my second one, I won a top three spot with A Creative Romance with my previous half easel card!
I Have Just Found Out That I Am First Place Winner In The Besties Challenge With This Card Too Woohoo!!!
I coloured her with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, although the dress did not require a lot of colouring, the face and hair did. This is a gorgeous image, I just love Sherri's Besties, she is called first prom!

I adore these papers they are both from the Maja Design Sofiero collection, the two are called "Strolling down the rose garden and Enjoy the lovely Fragrance". Both are from Live and Love Crafts. I also punched two tiny butterflies from the maja papers and distressed them with DI.

Removable Heart Doohickey threaded with Sheer Ribbon, Strung Pearls and Looped satin Ribbon. I Frantaged one side, Distressed it and added a heart charm and stamped it with love on the opposite side in Rich Mocha Ink. The tag is from behind the image.
The Beautiful gathered Lace is from LLC the flowers are from the ribbon girl. I punched and distressed two little butterflies from the leftover paper and added tiny oval pearls to their bodies. So nothing went to waste, I also used magnolia butterfly paper behind the maja papers and distressed them all.
Finally, I made a large hat pin, distressed and covered on the edge butterflies with the same maja paper and frantaged heart the embellishment from LLC.

Thank you for popping by and have a lovely weekend.
Take Care, Cuddles
