My double easel card

Hello! Here is my submission for the TOMIC Challenge #5 - Make an easel card - and then thought I would try another challenge site - Simon Says Stamp and Show - Show a Flourish. I've made an easel card once before and haven't been back to try it again. This is the first time I have used my Sizzix flourishes. Of course, I googled easel cards and looked at many beautiful cards created by amazing people. There was one card that stood out among all the rest - the double easel card - found at Sonia's Crafty Patch.
It inspired my card - thanks Sonia!
I have watched the cards that have been chosen by the Magnolia Design Team. The cards are always beautiful, over-the-top and unique. I am determined to have one of my cards chosen by the DT. Maybe this card will be the ONE? Maybe Simon Says Stamp and Show will like my card?
Now, about the card. The papers are from Close to My Heart. The paper is discontinued now but knew this was the card to use the paper on.

The Magnolia girls I coloured some time ago and was amazed how well the girls and the paper worked together - I couldn't have planned it much better!

I used Spellbinders Nestabilities behind the girls and Sizzix for the flourishes.

The girls are coloured using Copics. I've added pearls, crystals, flowers, charms and ribbon.

Thanks for checking out my card and blog. See you next week - hugs!
