Inky Impressions Easel Card Challenge

Hi all, for our new Inky Impressions Challenge  we would like you to make an easel card, now you know how much I love my Easel cards, decided I needed to have a go at a side/twist easel.

I have used the cute Inky Image 'Lili's Stuffed Bunny', which was one of my first images I bought, at the start of  my Inky obsession lol!  Now not sure if I have the twist right but this is my version lol! 

Now this is very, very ribbony and flowery for me and so not sure I have got the mix right!  Now if you look closely at the butterfly buttons their embroidery thread antenna have stickles on the ends, DD said this helped them look more like butterflies lol!  The papers are Kaisercraft La-Di-Da Collection, love the colours.  The little butterflies are from my MS border punch and a cute little bunny charm.  No guesses who wants this card for her 14th Birthday lol!

 A closer look at Glimmer Misted Lili with her Bunny, also got the sewing machine out and stitched around the outer edges, used some green dewdrops on the flowers.
A photo of the side  view stamped the inside using a SU stamp

The flowers are all hand stitched, my poor thumb got stabbed a few times! Have used a sparkly button and brads for centres, some of the brads are coloured using Copics.  Finally used my SU leaves sizzlits Little Leaves die
