This card is made using a Kanban Topper from a set I bought a couple of years ago and never got round to using. The backing papers are from Bearly Mine Designs Shabby Vintage set mounted on some copper coloured pearlescent card that I bought at a sale last week, (I only bought 2 sheets, wish I had bought them all, they were only 5p a sheet!) punched with a Martha Stewart punch. The Cherry Blossom and and roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the buds are from my stash, I can't remember where I got them. I used a Marrianne Designs Bird on a leaf die and just cut the leaves to finish off.  The sentiment is from a set by Hero Arts
This is for two challenges
Bearly Mine Designs Challenge 10 Vintage Easel Card  this is the first time I've made a twisted easel, I think I got it right.
