Thinking of you with a twist!

I never knew there was sooo much to making cards! This month there are 2 challenges that have pushed me out of my comfrort zone and I am glad I did so, otherwise I wouldn't have realised that i could make cards too!
Thanks Mansi for the current challenge
and Tanvi for that really challenging one...
It took me 2 weeks to crack this!
Am also linking this to...
Well, this is an easel card with 2 add on flaps and an extra twist which I will reveal at the end!
The image is a micia stamp(my fist stamp!) which i have colored using distress inks and the bg too using a hand cut cloud stencil.The trees are die cuts and managed to stamp the girl in her hammock at the right spot...

The 1st fold has some green foliage with lovely blue flowers using Cheery Lynn die and some butterflies hovering around.

The 2nd fold has the fence with a few creepers on it and some single layered flowers. The fence are the diecut remains of the Tim Holtz Bird Cage die which has been distressed too!

And now for the TWIST...the 2 butterflies that you see at the base is actually a tag pull out which when pulled out says "LOVE YOU". Isn't that cute???
 I thoroughly enjoyed making this card and looks like I am actualling confident of making them too! This one actually folds flat though I need to make a proper box for keeping it.
 your comments and feedbacks will be aprreciated as this is my first Easel card!
Thanks for stopping by....
Until then,
Happy Crafting and Re cycling!
