Easely a great challenge at Totally Tilda!!

Well, I am sorry this post is a bit late folks.  Went out for our Office Christmas Party on Friday night - we went to Chester and stayed over so didn't get back till midday yesterday and was absoloutely shattered so didn't get time to do my post ready for today........... but I'm here now - better late than never eh!
So, first off thank you to those of you who entered our last challenge - remember to pop in to the Totally Tilda challenge blog and see if you were one of our lucky winners/top 3.
So, time for another challenge - last one for this year and this time we want to see all your Easel Cards.  There are so many of you who make beautiful Easel cards so we are looking forward to seeing all your wonderful Tilda Easel creations.  This time we are lucky to have the wonderful Nikki from Bunny-Zoe's Crafts as our sponsor.
So if you are our lucky winner here is what you'll get as your prize!
Nikki's service is second to none and she stocks an awesome variety of goodies so even if you don't win the voucher you should pop over and have a look - don't forget your purse though!!
So here is the card I made for this challenge:
The DP on the  bottom is from a DCWV paperstack called Once Upon a Time and the sentiment is stamped onto one of Susie's versatile Die Cuts available at Die Cut Dreams. (I should tell you that Susie has closed up for the Christmas Period but you can still place your order and it will be dispatched as soon as possible when she re-opens in January).  The sentiment is a Clarity Stamp as is the flower to the right of it.  If you've never heard of Clarity Stamp before you might like to know that Barbara does shows on Create and Craft and also the website is well worth a visit.
The chair stamp is a Magnolia stamp which I purchased from Nikki at Bunny-Zoe's Crafts and I decided to paper-piece the chair as well as the books and letters.  Then I placed Tilda on the chair.
All the flowers, pin and pearls are from my stash as are the skeleton leaves. 
The butterfly is a peel off stuck on to acetate and cut out and then adhered to the card with my glue gun. 
The complete image is placed on another of Susie's wonderful die cuts. 
So people, can't wait to see your Easel creations - have fun.  I am going to enter this into the challenge at
Crafty Catz - Your Choice (I chose challenge 55 Magnolia)
