CACB #18 - Shaped Easel - DT card

The challenge this fortnight is
Shaped Easel 
(any shape except square or rectangular)

I have used one of Ann's free templates which can be found on the challenge blog
The Backing Papers are from Polished Stone Pastels and Embossed Dots Earth Tones collections.
The short petal flowers are printed on to one of  Mottled Stone collection 2 - you might guess one of my favourite patterns at the moment :-)
I have glittered the edges of the flowers with glitter glue and the centre of the large flower is filled with Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Flakes. The flourish has been Glamour Dusted so this is quite a sparkly creation
My granddaughter has claimed this for her friend's birthday so I added a greeting to personalise it for her.

A closer view of all the sparkle

You can find the challenge and some inspiration from the the lovely Design Team cards here .
I hope you will be able to join in with us this time.

I would also like to enter this for
